LEED ID+C: Commercial Interiors | v2 - LEED 2.0

Daylight and views - daylight 90% of spaces

EQc8.2 | Possible 1 point


Provide the occupants with a connection between indoor spaces and the outdoors through the introduction of daylight and views into the regularly occupied areas of the tenant space.


For at least 90% of all regularly occupied areas:

  • Achieve a minimum Daylight Factor of 2% (excluding all direct sunlight penetrations)
  • Using a computer simulation model, achieve at least 25 footcandles.


  • Provide daylight redirection and/or glare control devices to ensure daylight effectiveness.

Exceptions for areas where tasks would be hindered by the use of daylight will be considered on their merits.
