Project Boundary - New Building linked to an Existing Building
If a new building is linked or connected to an existing building (not necessarily an addition) and that link requires some modification to the existing building:
1. How do you determine the Project Boundary? Should it include the entire existing building or none of it?
2. What if the building is an addition (structurally and functionally) but maintains separate HVAC systems?
3. Does the Energy Model have to include the unrenovated building? Does this differ in above scenarios 1 and 2...?
