Let's cut straight to it:LEED background information:
LEED energy models have a default requirement that process loads and receptacles are 25% of the baseline building costs. The total cost must be identical in the proposed LEED model.
However, this assumption is based on a standard office building. Thus, if the process loads and receptacles are designed and documented (think spreadsheets, or even a basic description), one can use the actual designed loads. This can yield free leed points, bascially LEED plus a little math gets you 2 valuable LEED points.
Example LEED Case Study:
....LEED + Math = 2 Points!
Let's consider a building that has 31% savings on the proposed...
