VE-Toolkit for LEED
Automated indicative LEED® rating system credit assessment that covers daylighting, comfort, water and renewables across LEED NC V2.2/V3, LEED SchoolsV1/V3 and LEED Core and Shell V2/V3.
Covers LEED Credit EQ8.1. Simple 25fc (300 lux) threshold (75%spaces) or Advanced 25fc inc. light penetration (75% spaces) options available. Ability to define what spaces are included in the analysis. Output includes indicative pass/fail result, previous run comparison, visual floor-by-floor movie and tabular results to enable easy identification of marginal fail rooms.
Covers LEED Credit EQ7.1. ASHRAE 55 – 2004 compliant assessment method – occupied area must meet predicted mean vote (PMV) +0.5 to -0.5. Output includes indicative pass/fail result, previous run comparison, fly round movie and room by room table to enable easy identification of rooms that fail.
Covers LEED Credits WE2, 3.1, 3.2 (V2.2) and WE Pre 1, 2, 3 (2009). EPA – 1992 data; water use reduction calculation and innovative waste water technology (option 1). Editable appliance data. Output includes indicative pass/fail result, water stress significance, and reduction achieved with breakdown.
Covers LEED Credits EA2 & 6. Carbon reduction based on simulation data and user selected low/zero-carbon technology. Output includes indicative pass/fail results, CO2 breakdown by end-use and proposed contribution of technology to emissions reduction. Although not part of EA2 credit, low carbon technologies are included, as in some scenarios they may be more effective at reducing CO2 emissions.
