ACP- No Cooling Tower (Core & Shell v4)

CS-v4 WEc3: Cooling tower water use
posted by Anke Koch on Dec 12, 2017, 3:38 am

Concerning the 2) part I am sure it considers EITHER, thus whether system #7 or #8. FAQ (https://leeduser.buildinggreen.com/forum/acp-no-cooling-tower-core-shell-v4) also confirms my understanding of the interpretation. Log...

this question is about a project in Germany, so cost estimates might work differently here. We are having difficulties retrieving the material costs from the subcontractors.
