The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) is set to publish the Arabic translation of its ventilation standard in the coming months.
Azmi Aboul-Hoda, publicity chair of ASHRAE Falcon Chapter (UAE and Oman), told Construction Week that the translation of ASHRAE Standard 62.1 is nearly done.
Aboul-Hoda said: “This should be completed within the next two or three months, to be published on the ASHRAE website.”
“We are [translating standards] to Arabic to make them more accessible to people in the region who only know Arabic or who are interested in reading the standards in Arabic.”
Most recently, ASHRAE launched Standard 90.1 portal for building professionals, which provides detailed instruction for the design of commercial and high-rise residential buildings.
