Plant area allowances should incorporate sufficient space to permit the successful installation of the plant, and to allow on-going inspection and maintenance tasks to be conducted safely and efficiently. However, during the preliminary design stage of a project, the designer may not be aware of the actual plant to be installed. Nevertheless, a decision must be made with regard to plant area and weight allowances in order to permit structural and architectural designs to proceed. This volume provides guidance on suitable space and weight allowances for different plant items incorporating space for maintenance and installation. The space and weight required by the different plant items has been related to the output capacity of the plant. A ready means of obtaining estimates for output capacity can be found by reference to BSRIA "Technical Note 5/88.1, Rules of Thumb". For a given duty there may be a wide variation in the space and weight required between the various manufacturers' equipment. The lines presented are best fits to the manufacturers' data obtained.
