Our project is an office building with daytime occupancy. Inside the project, one room will be used as a supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) room which will be occupied 24x7 and accounts for about 3% of the total built up area..
While calculating EPI, does this area have to be considered or can the project be considered as daytime occupied building?
Yes, the project team needs to consider the BMS room in EPI calculation.
While doing energy simulation/modelling, the operating schedule can be fed as per the actual schedule of the operating area.
