Subject: [Equest-users] LEED Core & Shell questions


1. Should Tenant Spaces in LEED Core & Shell projects be modeled with
Appendix G systems for the Baseline, and for the Proposed as well if there
is no HVAC design?

-OR- Should Tenant Spaces be modeled as "unconditioned" in both the Baseline
and Proposed? (-OR- some other option?)


Finished tenant spaces should be modeled as designed with terminal units
placed on the tenant meter.  If unfinished, it should follow Appendix G.


2. What is the intent/purpose of the requirement to model separate electric
meters for lighting, plug loads and process loads in the Tenant Spaces?
Should the cost from these meters be removed from the building energy cost
for EAc1 savings?


Download the spreadsheet
<http://www.usgbc.org/resources/cs-v20-eac1-spreadsheet> , it should answer
your questions.


3. IF HVAC systems are modeled in the Tenant Spaces, should this energy be
assigned to separate meters as well?


idelines> & Shell Appendix 2 describes how the HVAC systems should be
modeled for the Core and Shell Building, but not for the Tenant Spaces.
Appendix 2 also describes the requirement for modeling separate meters.


Thank you,
