While most codes permit pool air to be used as makeup for showers, toilets, and locker rooms, these spaces should be provided with separate ventilation and maintained at a positive pressure with respect to the pool. Pool and spa areas should be maintained at a negative pressure of 15 to 40 Pa relative to adjacent areas of the building to prevent moisture and chloramine odor migration. Active methods of pressure control may prove more effective than static balancing and may be necessary where outdoor air is used as a part of an active humidity control strategy.

The projection booth represents the major problem in motion picture theater design. For large theaters using high-intensity lamps, projection room design must follow applicable building codes. If no building code applies, the projection equipment manufacturer usually has specific requirements. The projection room may be air conditioned, but it is normally exhausted or operated at negative pressure. Exhaust is normally taken through the housing of the projectors. Additional exhaust is required for the projectionist’s sanitary facilities.

The economies of the structure, attenuation, equipment logistics, and site must be considered in the selection of locations for mechanical equipment rooms. At least one mechanical equipment room is placed near the roof to house the toilet exhaust, general exhaust, cooling tower, kitchen, and emergency stage exhaust fans, if any. Individual roof-mounted exhaust fans may be used, thus eliminating the need for a mechanical equipment room. However, to reduce sound problems, mechanical equipment should not be located on the roof over the music hall or stage but rather over offices, storerooms, or auxiliary areas.
