In order to properly compare different building improvements, several characteristics must remain constant across all scenarios. Since most of the equipment, internal loads and envelope performance change between scenarios, the remaining characteristics, although still important, remain broad in scope. What follows are the remaining constants:
Shown below is a rendering of the building as modelled in the energy modelling software. Note that although skylights are shown, they are not present in all scenarios that will be discussed.
