    money receiving/counting/sorting area hvac system question

    One for the HVAC design experts:
    Im working on the preliminary design of a a/c system to be installed in an approximately 2,000 sqft money receiving/counting/sorting area. Heat load due to the automatic counting machines is not much: about 2 tons. What Im more interested in is in learning about the ventilation air cfm for such areas: should I consider minimum per person cfm or are we talking about a 100% fresh air system due to contaminants / odors? Any comments welcomed

    off the top of my head i wouldnt even think that there would be any special considerations for something like that....hell, most people i know love the smell of money.........anyways, i would think the regular 20% outside air should do you just fine

    I would use the ASHRAE 62.1 rates for banks.
    If "I have always done it this way" is a good reason to do it again, how many times do I have to do something wrong - before it becomes right?

    Thank you Brandewski and Cxagent for your answers.
    Isnt ASHRAE ventilation rates for banks more related to the public spaces rather than to the restricted areas of the bank?
