12.6 Ventilation for bathrooms can be provided by mechanical extraction at 6 Air
changes per hour, which may be operated intermittently.

12.7 WCs may be ventilated by either rapid ventilation (openings at least 1/ 20 floor
area with part at least 1.75 m above floor) or mechanical extraction (6 ach which
may be operated intermittently and with a 15 minutes overrun).
P Pa ag ge e 3 31 1

12.8 Ventilating a habitable room through an adjoining space:

Two habitable rooms may be considered a single room for ventilating purposes if
there is a permanent opening between which is equal to at least 1/ 20 combined
floor area.

A habitable room may be ventilated through an adjoining space if:

a) The adjoining space is a conservatory or a similar space and

b) There is an opening (which may be closable) between the room and the space,
with an area not less than 1/ 20th of the combined floor areas and

c) There is a ventilation opening(s) in the room and the space together, or in the
space alone, equal to at least 1/ 20th of the combined floor areas and with a
part of the ventilation opening area at least 1.75 m above the floor level and
for background ventilation there are openings to the space and between the
space and room each having not less than 4000 mm
2
area.

12.9 Alternative approaches:

The movement of air may be activated by such means as the operation of the door
of the compartment, the operation of the lighting or by independent manual
control. However, there shall be an overrun of at least 15 minutes after the use of
the compartment.

A recommended alternative approach to meeting the performance requirements is
contained in BS 5720:1979 Code of Practice for mechanical ventilation and air
conditioning in buildings and BS 5250:1989 Code of Practice: the control of
condensation in buildings (Clauses 9.8 and 9.9)

CONSUMERS REQUEST FOR POWER SUPPLY



THIS FORM IS DESIGNED TO ENABLE THE FREE ZONE AUTHORITY TO INSTALL THE
CORRECT CABLE AND EQUIPMENT TO SERVE YOUR FACILITY. IT IS THEREFORE
REQUIRED TO BE COMPLETED IN DETAIL BY A QUALIFIED ELECTRICAL
ENGINEER/CONSULTANT SO THAT A FULL UNDERSTANDING OF YOUR INSTALLATION IS
PRESENTED.

THE TOTAL CAPACITY REQUESTED IN KVA AS ENTERED ON THIS FORM WILL BE
CONSIDERED AS YOUR FULL AND FINAL REQUIREMENT. A LATER AMENDMENT
THEREON WILL GENERALLY NOT BE ACCEPTED BY THE AUTHORITY. IF, FOR SOME
REASON, AN AMENDMENT BECOMES NECESSARY AT A LATER STAGE, THEN THE
AUTHORITY RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REAPPRAISE THE PROJECT FOR ITS
ACCEPTABILITY/ADEQUACY OF LEASE TERMS. POWER WILL BE SUPPLIED EITHER AT
380 V, 3 PH + N, 50 HZ, OR, AT 11 KV, 3 PH, 50 HZ, AT THE DISCRETION OF THE AUTHORITY,
DEPENDING ON THE CONNECTED LOAD.

ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT GENERALLY IS AVAILABLE ONLY ON LONG LEAD TIME. THE
AUTHORITY THEREFORE REQUIRES THIS INFORMATION AT AN EARLY STAGE TO PLAN
ITS DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM AND OBTAIN EQUIPMENT.

THE POWER SUPPLY CONNECTION WILL ONLY BE MADE UPON COMPLETION OF THE
FACILITY AND A BUILDING COMPLETION CERTIFICATE IS ISSUED. POWER IS NOT
PROVIDED DURING CONSTRUCTION.

ALL ELECTRIC MOTOR DRIVES ARE TO BE LISTED. THIS IS TO ENSURE THAT THE
CAPACITY OF THE SUPPLY IS SUFFICIENT WHEN STARTING DIRECT-ON-LINE DEVICES.
FOR EXAMPLE, STARTING OF MOTORS IS LIMITED TO DRIVES OF 22 KW CAPACITY ON A
150 KVA SUPPLY, WHEREAS FOR REDUCED CURRENT STARTING METHODS, THIS LIMIT IS
40 KW. THE TOTAL INSTALLED CAPACITY OF ELECTRIC MOTOR DRIVES IS LIMITED TO
64 KW ON A 150 KVA SUPPLY, INCLUDING AIR CONDITIONING. IF THERE IS A
REQUIREMENT FOR GREATER THAN 22 KW FOR DIRECT-ON-LINE STARTING, OR
GREATER THAN 40 KW FOR REDUCED CURRENT STARTING, THEN THE CAPACITY OF THE
SUPPLY WILL HAVE TO BE OF SUITABLE HIGHER RATING.

IF SPACE ON THIS FORM IS NOT SUFFICIENT TO LIST ALL EQUIPMENT, PLEASE SUBMIT
DETAILS ON A SEPARATE SHEET.

FOR LARGER INSTALLATIONS, THE AUTHORITY SHALL BE CONSULTED REGARDING
POWER FACTOR CORRECTION MEASURES.

A SPECIMEN COMPLETED FORM IS AVAILABLE FOR YOUR GUIDANCE.

IF CONTINUITY OF POWER IS ESSENTIAL FOR THE SAFE OPERATION OF THE FACILITY IT
SHALL BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE DEVELOPER TO PROVIDE SUITABLE STAND-BY
POWER SUPPLY ARRANGEMENTS IN THE EVENT OF RARE MAINS SUPPLY FAILURES.
THOUGH ALL EFFORTS WILL BE MADE BY THE AUTHORITY TO MAINTAIN THE QUALITY
AND CONTINUITY OF POWER SUPPLY, IT WILL ASSUME NO RESPONSIBILITY, IN
WHATSOEVER MANNER, FOR ANY CONSEQUENCES ARISING OUT OF AN UNEXPECTED
DEGRADATION/FAILURE OF THE POWER SUPPLY.

ENERGY CONSUMPTION TARIFF APPLICABLE IS AS PER DUBAI ELECTRICITY AND WATER
AUTHORITYS REGULATIONS AND IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AS PER DECISIONS OF ABOVE
