Are you under the impression that 5 packaged rooftop air handlers must be included in the proposed design? If so, then you should be aware that this only applies to the Baseline model. If that's not what you were saying, then I'm not sure why the Architect when need to be told anything earlier in the design. Unless you are implying that your Proposed model would perform better against a system other than System type 5 in which case the Architect could adjust the footprint of the building to affect the Baseline system type if they knew about this requirement.

Each floor shall be modeled with a separate HVAC system yet each system (System 5 & 6) shall be packaged?  5 storey buildings less than 150,000 ft2 shall have 5 packaged rooftop air handlers?
If we are trying to change the intuitive design of building structures than someone should tell the Architect what they shall do with the floor space earlier in design.
