<b>Total building water consumption<br>for regulated fixtures, B3 requirement</b><br>10.26 gallons/sf-yr <b>Total building water consumption,<br>project as designed</b><br>7.29 gallons/sf-yr
The total building water consumption is shown in gallons per square foot, and compares the B3 requirement of 30% less than a base case (from 1992 Energy Policy Act requirements) to the project as designed and the actual indoor water use from meter readings.
