Is anyone using Revit to Calculate ALL of their necessary HVAC information for selection of equipment?
Just curious to see if anyone is still using ASHRAE spread sheets to calculate these values. I have started creating some schedules for zones and spaces and working on a template for getting initial supply/outdoor air values from an early architectural model. I am trying to remove the process of printing an architectural plan, handing that to an engineer. Then have him/her write the room names and numbers, areas, blah blah blah, and then create a spreadsheet which is then just handed back to the tech to input the info.
The process is working well so far, I am working with an engineer whom is on board with the idea, but just wondering how far we can take it. We are still going to use trane to confirm loads, but early selection of mechanical equipment should move along much smoother now.
