[bldg-sim] eQUEST HVAC sizing runs

As I mentioned previously, I am creating an energy model for a LEED
project.  In "baselining" the building, one of the stipulations of ASHRAE
90.1 2004 is:
"G3.1.2.2 Equipment Capacities.  The equipment capacities for the baseline
building design shall be based on sizing runs for each orientation and shall
be oversized by 15% for cooling and 25% for heating"

I think that means I use "auto-size", but then how do I capture what that
size is and oversize it accordingly?  I am guessing that the results may be
in the SIM file.  Can anyone provide tips for executing this?  Is there a
better way to do that auto-sizing for each orientation?
