[Equest-users] Building area method ASHRAE 90.1

The building area method applies a uniform LPD to the entire building. If you do that in your baseline, you need to apply a uniform LPD to you proposed building too.
In general, I don't recommend using the building are method - the space by space method is a better approach.

How does the building area method work?

I just got a comment from the review team for a project pursuing LEED certification.

I used the building area method for the baseline case and in the proposed case I put the LPD from the lighting design. However they told me that the same method has to be used in both cases.

Any help would be appreciate.
