Hej,
i recently moved to Sweden from the US and was wondering if Sweden has a comprehensive building code like the ones we have in the US? i'm specifically looking for the Swedish Mechanical Building Code. I'm currently using ASHRAE standards for design, but i would feel a lot more comfortable if i had the Swedish document. I asked around at work, and was pointed to BBR. After a thorough review of the BBR i wasn't able to find a mechanical section i.e HVAC and Plumbing. I would appreciate any help on this matter. Thanks

I know nothing about this cool.gif , but as far as I understand, BBR is about dimensioning of the various structures. For HVAC and other areas of interest to you, have you looked at Eurocodes? Search for example for Eurocodes HVAC.
