NOTE prEN 17555-1:2021 is also required to be read in conjunction with the Construction Products Regulation.
The use of aggregates as soil is not covered by prEN 17555-1:2021. This is because there is a huge variation of geological and pedological conditions in Europe and precise definition of soil can only be found in the documents related to the application in the place of use. Reference can be made to the non-harmonized standards in the EN 16907 series for further information.

This document specifies design criteria for closed water-based cooling systems in buildings. The requirements aim at achieving a proper technical quality level and maintaining the desired thermal indoor climate with minimum energy consumption.
Systems for dissipating process heat from industrial processes, for example, are not covered by this document.
This document does not amend product standards or product installation requirements. The standard covers cooling systems of the following type (see Figure 1):
1) devices for the water-based heat rejection of the chilling system;
2) devices for chilling and storage of chilled water;
3) devices for the distribution of chilled water;
4) devices for the absorption of heat (“cooling emission”);
5) control devices;
6) safety devices.

 

 

The design of such systems is described in this document. In the case of water-based cooling systems with local operating temperatures ≤ 0 °C separate safety aspects may apply. The other Clauses of this document are still valid for those systems.
This document does not cover the chilling system itself, but only the parts of the chilling system which are an integral part of the cooling system, including determination of the design performance.Furthermore this document does not cover:
— the requirements for installation or instructions for operation, maintenance and use;
— the design of the system components (e.g. recooler, chilling system, coolers, pipes, safety devices etc.).
The relevant technical rules with regard to the prevention of corrosion are to be observed in the material selection for the system components and the nature of the heat transfer medium.

This document provides a process for the evaluation of the potential for sustainable refurbishment of an existing building, as a mean of contributing to the circular economy. This document gives guidelines to assess performance of existing buildings in order to determine what to do in a set of alternatives: Refurbish for similar or new use, use as is or sustainably deconstruct. Sustainable refurbishment aims to close the gap between current performance and current requirements. It can be used for a building or part(s) of a building, as well as a portfolio of buildings.
This document gives a method for assessing performance of existing buildings:
1) Technical (including energy) characteristics
2) Usability for users
3) Adaptability for changes
4) Indoor environment (health aspects)
5) Economic feasibility
6) Embodied environmental impacts
The document describes the work to be done in main applicable categories of a 5 steps process:
• Step 0: Establish brief of the object of the assessment
• Step 1: Evaluating the building
• Step 2: Sustainable deconstruction
• Step 3: Sustainable construction process
• Step 4: Sustainable commissioning
• Step 5: Sustainable in use
NOTE In this document, the users are people and organisations working in the building, including the facility management. In some buildings visitors are also important users.
This approach is generic for all types of buildings. At present this document does not cover civil engineering work and it does not give benchmarks for the evaluation.
Assessment of the impacts of sustainable refurbishment of buildings is covered by calculation methods described in EN 15978, EN 16309 and EN 16627.
