Appendix G is very explicit regarding these issues. Amanda's interpretation
is not consistent with Appendix G (though any mandatory envelope measures
applicable to "alterations/additions") would still apply for the LEED
The relevant sections of Appendix G include:
- Table G3.1.5(Baseline)(f): All elements of the existing Baseline
building envelope shall reflect the existing conditions prior to any
revisions that are part of the scope of work being evaluated. [Notes: 
this only includes existing portions of the building, and does not apply to
building additions;  there is no exception mandating that elements with
changes that are part of the scope of work must be modeled as meeting
minimum ASHRAE prescriptive envelope requirements].
- Table G3.1.5(Proposed): The building envelope shall be modeled as shown
on architectural drawings or as built for existing building envelopes (any
changes to the existing building envelope reflected on the architectural
drawings would be reflected in the Proposed Case).
