Hi Omar,


The Proposed Case should be entered as designed in eQuest. The default
values of eQuest can be used if there is no specific design available.
However, if the design is available the values should match in all the
design documents and the model. Rerunning is a good choice, I guess.
Providing a narrative to explain any revisions is always a good call.

Subject: [Equest-users] Review Comment - Equipment capacities for


Dear all,


I have received the following LEED design review:


"Mechanical drawings with equipment schedules (M-04, M-05, and M-06) with
the heating and cooling pumps, boiler, chiller, and cooling tower schedules
have been provided. However, the scheduled flows and capacities are
inconsistent with those reported in the Table 1.4.3 in the spreadsheet.

Please revise the Proposed model to reflect the design conditions (including
all capacities, flows, controls, and setpoints), revise the form and
spreadsheet as required to reflect any changes, and provide reports or
screen captures to confirm the changes made."


My impression was that we don't have to enter the capacities / flows (as per
the Mechanical design) in eQUEST, as the program automatically
calculates/sizes these.

The reviewer noticed an inconsistency between Table 1.4.3 (whereby I filled
in the equipment capacities & loop flows from the eQUEST Simulation Output
reports) and the Mechanical schedules.


Shall I rerun my simulations with whatever capacities/schedules provided by
the Mechanical Engineers?





Please note that EcoConsulting is holding a new series of eco-seminars on
Green Building & LEED GA Training in November.
