MCW provided full energy modeling, simulation, and reporting to model the building with EE4 to meet LEED Canada energy performance and award the possible LEED Optimized Energy Performance Points. During the course of the design phase, multiple simulations were performed to make sure that the performance goals were being met. The mandatory requirements were satisfied as a prerequisite to the LEED Optimized Performance Points. The possible LEED EA Credit points available for the facility were 5 points. The model was sent to LEED Canada for review.
