Construction is pushing ahead rapidly here onsite. Over the past few weeks, the main focus has been the boring of the geothermal wells, foundation work and the preparation for the assembly of the superstructure.
You cannot design a net zero building without a detailed Energy Model to accompany you throughout the design process. Nor can you design a geothermal system without a detailed energy model providing a clear picture of the loads extracted and rejected from the ground. You also need an energy model for the LEED submission process. A casual observer might naturally assume that this energy model is always done by the same person. Unfortunately, this is almost never the case.
