I recently have seen shopping malls and retail stores being under construction or under renovation. Retail stores and shopping malls go through different renovation projects to install energy efficient air conditioning systems and higher quality lighting systems. Have you ever gone into a store where the air conditioning is not working or down? I have and it was not a pleasant shopping experience. One of the many factors that retail owners are looking into is the design of the different building structures. Retail spaces and shopping centers have become bog box buildings and fire and life safety systems are designed to work according to HVAC systems.

HVAC and smoke control in important when shopping malls and retail stores are linked together. Modifications are being recognized when shopping malls and retail stores go under renovation because HVAC systems now can be highly efficient and HVAC systems in retail stores address high traffic at entrance points in the stores. These retail spaces have greater potential and benefits because of shared central systems because the design of the building will be in accordance with other stores. The design of the building plays an important role in shopping areas because HVAC systems require proper zoning and ventilation rates to prevent odors and control humidity. HVAC energy use of shopping malls has been examined in the industry to create different ventilation strategies for future shopping centers.
