Hello All,

I am trying to model a three floor office building for LEED V3. The first
and second floor are served by two chilled water air handlers, both
manifolded and running in parallel.
Does LEED require to model both the units because the schedules and drawings
show two units.
For baseline, I know ASHRAE G3.1.1 states I have to have seperate HVAC
system for each floor, as I have system 5.


Thanks and Best Regards,
