I am looking to understand if it would be acceptable to provide thermal comfort control only through a BMS system for a multi-occupant space. Our building serves as a waiting area for general public travelers, and there is concern that giving direct control of the multi-occupant space could cause damage to the control etc. To prevent this, we would like the travelers to requests to building staff for temperature changes, which then will be communicated to whichever particular staff members/facilities management have access to the BMS.

Would this be allowable under the LEED requirements for occupant control in multiple-occupant spaces? What would be the potential feedback of why this would not work? And how else would you recommend providing occupant control?

Thank you in advance,
