2. Presentation Agenda

3. Introduction and Background • After this course you will be able to: • Describe the LEED EQc8.1 Daylight Credit • Understand how Glazing Factors (GF) are calculated • Predict how the sun’s position affects glazing • Explain how the building can be analyzed in Green Building Studio and the IES Sustainability Toolkit • About the Speaker Nick Bower, a graduate of Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science in Architecture, serves as a Technical Engineer for Advanced Solutions, Inc. with a focus on the Autodesk® Revit® Architecture and Navisworks® Manage software solutions. After graduating from Ohio State University, Mr. Bower worked in the residential design field. As a Technical Engineer for Advanced Solutions, Inc., Mr. Bower has many tasks and responsibilities, including the analysis of software solutions and the implementation of vertical base software solutions.

4. LEED EQc8.1 Overview • 2 Sides to the Story • Prescriptive • 75% of Spaces = Ratio Requirement • 0.15 < VLT x WFR > 0.18 • Manual Calculation • Schedules • Revit Architecture / MEP • Simulation • Min 75% of Spaces = 25fc • Computer Model Analysis • Weather Data • Ecotect, GBS, IES <VE>

5. LEED EQc8.1 Overview • Prescriptive Option Thoughts • Separate Analysis Model? • Curtain Systems or Windows? • Credit Metrics • VLT = Visible Light Transmittance • WFR = Window to Floor Ratio • Glazing Factor (GF) = VLT x WFR • Rooms = 0.15 > (GF) > 0.18
