Here is a short excerpt:
Electrical rooms and mechanical, electrical and plumbing spaces are often an afterthought when it comes to building design and planning. This shortsightedness can have unfortunate consequences on the cost, operations and flexibility of the electrical systems for the future. However, good engineering practice will often go beyond code in accommodating enhanced operation and maintenance of electrical equipment within the room. In addition, the NEC does not cover the many important considerations in coordinating with architectural, structural, HVAC or fire protection disciplines. This session will provide that detail.
