Energy Modeling and LEED Support

 

Energy Modeling

Energy is the lifeblood of buildings. REG supports efficient building design with energy analysis projects that range from quick estimates to detailed computerized simulations. We use the widely recognized Energy-10 and DOE-2 programs, and supplement the results when necessary with post-processing tools of our own design, based on physics and experience. Energy estimates help:

  • Inform design decisions such as HVAC system selection and fuel choice
  • Allow accurate economic projections of payback, ROI, or life-cycle cost
  • Support LEED Energy and Atmosphere credit application—often a mission-critical element of LEED certification
  • Produce post-construction “true-ups” to verify that the building is meeting energy expectations
  • Confirm achievement of energy performance promised during entitlements or permitting

LEED Support

Resource Engineering Group provides assistance with a variety of LEED credits and prerequisites. We primarily assist with Energy and Atmosphere (EA) and Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) credits relating to the mechanical systems, energy modeling, and fundamental/enhanced commissioning. We also handle the LEED Online documentation for all applicable credits and prerequisites. A list of LEED projects and the credits that REG worked on is available upon request.
