IEQ-6 DAYLIGHT AND VIEWS

Technical Clarification

Definition of ‘extended period of time'

Erratum Number
IEQ-6-T-EBP1-2352

Guidance

2018-07-05

 

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.

Building Characteristics for Daylight

Erratum  Number
IEQ6-E-EBP1-1529

Guidance

2016-08-05

Under Option 2 Criteria of Building Characteristics for Daylight (deemed-to-satisfy), where it states that “At least 40% of the longest external building façades are made up of transparent or translucent glazing.” Please note that the credit requires that 40% of the façade is transparent or translucent glazing and therefore project teams are to account for the area on the façade of transparent or translucent glazing and compare it to the total façade area rather than the length
