LEED PRM / Project Dart
For this Hurleypalmerflatt project Christina Galyfianaki accomplished the PRM (Performance Rating Method of ASHRAE Standard 90.1) with the employment of the exceptional calculation methodology to finally attain 34.1% energy cost savings compared to the baseline building.
The EA credit 1: Optimize Energy Performance among other credits granted the Platinum LEED rating to the project.
What is LEED
Prerequisites and credits differ for each rating system, and teams choose the best fit for their project.
There are four levels of certification the number of points a project earns determines the level of LEED certification that the project will receive. Typical certification thresholds are:
What is EA CREDIT 1 and PRM
The credits are granted after a percentage improvement rating in the proposed building is compared wirt the performance rating of the baseline building. The Performance Rating Method is described in Appendix G of ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1-2007 (with errata but without addenda). ASHRAE is the the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating, and Air-Conditioning Engineers and it sets standards and guidelines relating to HVAC systems and issues.
PRM Model Requirements
The software used for this project is eQuest with post process work involved.
