When using the LEED compliance routine, do you create your proposed bldg
FIRST and it generates the LEED baseline bldg from there?

Hi Alan,

Yes, that's the general idea and approach. In a case where you might not
have a compliance too that generates a baseline building for you, then it is
also my personal approach to build my proposed model first and then "Save
As" and 'back-off' the performance values and systems to that equal to
baseline values.

I had just posed this question on the list a couple weeks ago to see what
the general approach is among simulators and it turned out that the approach
is 50/50 some do proposed first, some build thier baseline first.

You might want to search the archives to see if you get other's input on
your modeling approach.

Cheers,
Pasha
