Thermal comfort and 'Shell & Core' spaces
Technical Clarification Number
The following guidance is provided for spaces delivered as ‘Shell & Core’, as defined in the Green Star SA Multi Unit Residential v1 Technical Manual.
The thermal comfort within a mechanically ventilated space is highly influenced by the design of the HVAC system within the space. Where a mechanically ventilated space is not provided with a complete HVAC system, as evidenced through the provision of a fully documented design within the tender documentation (Design rating) or as installed As Built documentation and commissioning reports (As Built rating), compliance with the Credit Criteria cannot be demonstrated.
