Controllability of systems - temperature and ventilation

EQc6.2 | Possible 1 point


Provide a high level of temperature and ventilation control by individual occupants or specific groups in multi-occupant spaces (e.g., classrooms or conference areas) to promote the productivity, comfort and wellbeing of building occupants.


Provide individual temperature and ventilation controls for at least 50% of the building occupants, enabling adjustments to suit individual needs and preferences, or those of a group sharing a multi-occupant space or workgroup area. Operable windows may be used in lieu of individual controls for occupants in spaces near the 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 62.1-2004 paragraph 5.1.
