IES Consulting performed the LEED energy modelling, on behalf of Aurecon, for this new large data centre development at Lorimer Street, Port Melbourne. The data centre was pursuing LEED 2009 Core and Shell Certification and comprised a hot aisle and cold aisle containment HVAC strategy for the facility's data halls.

In order to assess performance and document the EAp2/EAc1 pre-requisite and credit, IES consulting used the IES Virtual Environment software to conduct the Performance Rating Method (PRM) of ASHRAE 90.1-2007 Appendix G.
