HIGH PERFORMANCE Bldgs. Standardization Scheme Mexico approach
Mexico economical transformation is taking off , so all of us that want to participate in this will have to be prepare to comply with new official requirements on building industry. For those that only give service in its country maybe can be helpful these documents.
In Mexico we have evaluated how in standardization national program to proceed in our industry. Three organizations AMERIC (americ.mx), IMEI /BOMA ( www.imei.org.mx ); SUME (www.sume.org.mx) work together to set in terms of the Federal Metrics & Standardization Law with the National Standardization Organization (ANCE, ONNCCE, NYCE) the development of a std. scheme that includes the best and good practices in the building industry around the world.
|Mexican Standardization High Performance Building Scheme|
This scheme intend to have a baseline of Sustainable / Energy Efficiency requirements that can comply with GRC concepts; this standard called in Spanish NORMA has the acronym NMX the numbering is AA-164. It has Soil, Energy Efficiency, Waste, Water, and other issues.
Then if you want to comply with the High Performance Buildings concept, we decided to develop for each kind of building (most important in industry) an special Norma so exist at this moment:
- HPDC High Performance Data Centres NMX-C-I-J 489 ANCE-NYCE-ONNCCE
- HPCB High Performance Commercial Bldgs. In progress 2014
- HPCx High Performance Bldgs Commissioning IN progress 2014
- HPHB High Performance Health Bldg.s 2015
All of these NORMAS include the following systems
- Architecture & civil works
- Cooling /Heating / Ventilation
- Information Technologt Transport
- Internal Transport
The Commissioning concept has been included in all documents to assure the best quality of OPEration, CONstruction, DESign in such High Performance Buildings.
we hope this effort will be helpful fior those abroad investing in projects in this industry.
but what do you think?
