Achieve a minimum Daylight Factor of 2% (excluding all direct sunlight penetration) in space occupied for critical visual tasks, not including copy rooms, storage areas, mechanical, laundry and other low-occupancy support areas. Exceptions include those spaces where tasks would be hindered by the use of daylight or where accomplishing the specific tasks within a space would be enhanced by the direct penetration of sunlight.

Achievement of a 2% daylight factor in:
- IEQ Credit 8.1: 50% of all spaces occupied for critical visual tasks. (1 point)
- IEQ Credit 8.2: 75% of all spaces occupied for critical visual tasks. (1 point)
