IEQ-3 THERMAL COMFORT

Technical Clarification

Definition of ‘extended period of time'

Erratum Number
IEQ-3-T-EBP1-2352

Guidance

The GBCSA will accept the Interiors Tool description that ‘where a person is expected to work for a period longer than one continuous hour per day’ is equated in the EBP Technical Manual to ‘a space where a person is expected to work, or remain for an extended period of time’ and is a REGULARLY OCCUPIED SPACE.
The further definition/words in the Interiors Occupied Space (OS) don’t apply to the EBP Tool and the definitions with in the EBP Technical Manual as well the definitions within each credit should be taken into account when understanding and defining what REGULARLY OCCUPIED SPACE is for that specific credit.

Note any points targeted will not be awarded unless a Tenant Guideline Document and adherence of the credit requirements laid out in the TM are submitted. Project teams need to provide evidence if all areas are under building management control and therefore a Tenant Guideline Document does not need to be submitted.
