Erratum – Terms and definitions – computer server room(s)

The definition of computer server room(s) has been updated;

A room within the NIA designed to accommodate computer and associated communications equipment for tenants that is separated from adjacent spaces by full-height walls and a door.

Note 1 in Section has also been updated for clarity;

Note 1: When chilled water energy is provided to a computer server room, the measured thermal energy is included within the minimum energy coverage and is used to provide an adjustment to the benchmark energy use of the building at a rate of 0.4 kWhe/kWhth, based on an assumed COP of 2.75.
For condenser water services, the benchmark adjustment is 0.04 kWhe/kWhth, based on 40 W/kW of heat rejected and for hot water the adjustment is 0.9 kWhe/kWhth based on a heating system efficiency of 85 %.
These adjustments expand the basis of the rating to include the additional services provided. They also provide incentive for such services at an efficiency greater than or equal to the baseline efficiency assumptions. If no thermal metering is provided, no benchmark adjustment is made.

These will be updated in the next version of the Rules: Energy for Offices
