Technical Report 1: ASHRAE Standard 62.1 Ventilation and Standard 90.1 Energy Design Evaluations

The building's compliance with the systems and equipment requirements in Section 5 of ASHRAE Standard 62.1 2007.

The Ventilation Rate Calculation Procedure was also used to determine whether the building meets ventilation and exhaust requirements at design conditions in Section 6 of ASHRAE Standard 62.1 2007.

The evaluation of the building's compliance with the building envelope, HVAC systems, service water heating, power, lighting, and electric motor efficiency criteria in ASHRAE Standard 90.1 2007.

Technical Report 2: Building and Plant Energy Analysis Report

The building's design load estimation compared with design heating and cooling loads based on actual data taken from design documents. Comparison of design documents and computed load and ventilation values with the computed values from Trane TRACE 700.

The annual energy consumption and operating costs were estimated using the same assumptions used in the load estimation. Identification of schedules, fuel rates, and emissions for annual information of the building.

Technical Report 3: Mechanical Systems Existing Conidtions Evaluation

An overview of the overall mechanical system was completed; including dicussion from Technical Reports 1 and 2. New content includes LEED rating system v2.2 analysis, system operations, schematics, and mechanical construction costs.




“Note: While great efforts have been taken to provide accurate and complete information on the pages of CPEP, please be aware that the information contained herewith is considered a work‐inprogress for this thesis project. Modifications and changes related to the original building designs and construction methodologies for this senior thesis project are solely the interpretation of Krysta Skinner. Changes and discrepancies in no way imply that the original design contained errors or was flawed. Differing assumptions, code references, requirements, and methodologies have been incorporated into this thesis project; therefore, investigation results may vary from the original design.”
