Provide a high level of thermal and ventilation control for individual occupants, and specific groups in multi-occupant spaces (e.g., classrooms and conference areas), to promote the productivity, comfort and well-being of building occupants.
Provide thermal and ventilation controls for:
- At least 50% of the space occupants that enable adjustment to suit individual needs and preferences,
- All shared multi-occupant spaces where transient groups must share controls.
Operable windows may be used in lieu of individual controls for occupants near windows (20 feet inside of and 10 feet to either side of the operable part of the window), and where the operable windows meet the requirements of ASHRAE Standard 62-2004 Section 5.1 Natural Ventilation.
