360 Analytics was engaged by the design team to provide energy modeling services to inform HVAC system selection and LEED-NC energy modeling.  During the design development phase, the study focused heavily on comparing two HVAC system options: 1) Packaged variable air volume (VAV) versus 2) a high-efficiency variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system with dedicated outdoor air system (DOAS).  Because this analysis occurred early in design, 360 Analytics worked closely with members across the project team including design professionals, contractors, and subs to ensure the systems and performance modeled closely represented a fully designed system.  The analysis illustrated the significant energy/maintenance savings, CO2 emission reductions, and additional LEED points, while a simple financial model revealed an acceptable payback period.

The Martin is a new, 188 unit high-rise apartment development in the Midtown neighborhood of Seattle, Washington. The project has been certified Gold under the LEED-NC 2009 rating system. The design utilizes a range of energy and water efficient systems, such as water loop heat pumps, high-efficiency space and water heating boilers, EnergyStar appliances, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and lighting occupancy sensors in most all common spaces. Energy modeling was used to inform the design of ventilation systems by evaluating the impacts of variable-flow corridor ventilation and super-efficient whole house fans. Finally, utilizing the process of measurement and verification, the actual performance of the Martin's design was evaluated, thereby closing the loop on the design of this exceptional project.

The Safford Memorial Shelter is a major renovation and addition to create a comfortable high-performance animal shelter for the Animal Rescue League of Boston. Integrating energy modeling early into the design phase allowed the design team to identify measures with the highest energy impacts. A number of technologies were investigated including ground source heat pumps, radiant-floor heating, solar-assisted hot water, energy recovery, natural ventilation, and tempered dedicated outside air.

UW Husky Stadium Renovation and Team Facilities

The University of Washington Husky Stadium Renovation and Team Facilities restores iconic Husky Stadium to one the finest college football venues in the country. In addition to new seating, suites, and other spectator amenities, state-of-the-art team operations and sports medicine facilities have been efficiently integrated into the renovation of the program.

Energy modeling was initially employed to evaluate compliance with the 2009 Seattle Energy Code via the Systems Analysis (RS-29) approach. This required close coordination with the design team, as well as proactive communication with code reviewers throughout the permitting process. The same detailed models were used to evaluate impacts of various envelope revisions, and ongoing work includes preparing ASHRAE 90.1-2007 Appendix G energy models to determine LEED-NC 2009 Energy and Atmosphere (EAc1) performance rating.
