We are designing a community center and aquatics facility with several outdoor pools. In considering certification options and targets, we are realizong that the pools are major components - both in terms of energy (heating the water) and water use. Can we exclude these loads as "process loads"? Should we look at drawing the project boundary to exclude the pools and decks (the mechanical systems are separate from the building's)? We are concerned that, no matter how efficient the building is, we will not be able to achieve basic certification if we include the pools.
