LEED O+M: Existing Buildings | v2 - LEED 2.0

Daylight and views - views

EQc8.4 | Possible 1 point

Intent

Provide a connection between indoor spaces and the outdoor environment through introduction of daylight and views into the occupied areas of the building.

Requirements

Develop and adopt a space churn renovation plan and policy that specifies the goal of achieving direct line of sight to vision glazing for building occupants from 90% of all regularly occupied spaces (not including copy rooms, storage areas, mechanical, laundry and other low-occupancy support areas).

AND
  • IEQ Credit 8.3: Achieve direct line of sight to vision glazing for building occupants from 45% of regularly occupied spaces. (1 point)
  • IEQ Credit 8.4: Achieve direct line of sight to vision glazing for building occupants from 90% of regularly occupied spaces. (1 point)

Regularly occupied spaces are considered as having access to views if they provide direct line of sight to vision glazing, where horizontal view angles to the vision glazing are not less than 10 degrees (must include partition base and glazing frame if appropriate). Vision glazing is vertical windows between 2’6” and 7’6” above the floor. Views to vision glazing may be direct or through interior windows.
