I believe the newer version ASHRAE90.1 has taken the band window
requirement out as the building has been rotated 4 times. I have never
rotated the building myself yet. Not sure how hard that can be resolved.

I think your best bet is to compare two separate models. In the
tools-parametric run section link baseline building to the proposed inp
file. Create a parametric run and keep adding parametric components and
select the category for each change. After comparing your components
(which you have to update and test by running the action - simulate
building performance all in the detail interface) run the perform
simulation and fix errors. Then dumb down to window to average sq per of
window to all sides in your baseline case. I haven't done that yet but
the teacher said to do it that way and can anyone help with changing the
orientation in the detailed interface for LEED???

Subject: [Equest-users] LEED modeling management


I am trying to model a building for LEED compliance of EA credit 1 and
am having difficulties.  I was wondering if anyone could give me some
input on the most efficient and easiest way to model the baseline vs.
the proposed building?  

Is it best to model each baseline and proposed building in completely
separate files and then compare them against one another when finished?

Or is it better to model them in one file and use global parameters and
parametric runs to compare the two?  If so, how do you tackle the single
band of windows required by ASHRAE 90.1?

Any tips or info. On how to best meet LEED requirements would be very

Thanks in advance,
