Our project is an existing 300,000 sf Office building. Our client is both the new owner and will be the sole tenant. No changes will be made to the Mechanical other than the distribution (New Electrical, no envelope changes). We are trying to determine if any points can be achieved for Equipment efficiency because the equipment is existing (does the credit apply to new equipment only?) and since the building is too large for the AEDG Standard (up to 100,000 sf only). If the existing equipment is "efficient", might we use the v3 standard Advanced Buildings Core Performance Guide to demonstrate compliance?
Thank you for your help and consideration.
