Dear All,

We’re currently working on a LEED certification of a new office building that will be built in Portugal. This building will have large glazed areas in its façades, both to increase occupants well-being due to natural lighting levels but also to optimize artificial lighting energy use (dimming control). In order to control solar gains, these façades will include glazed areas with low SHGC and an outdoor metallic mesh for shading issues. This mesh will have an opening area of 40% (please see this link to see the type of device

Even though the purpose of this metallic mesh is for shading, it still allows occupants to have a clear vision of exterior areas, objects, fauna, etc. However, we would like to confirm that this solution can be used without any impact on Quality Views credit compliance. Can anyone confirm?

Thanks in advance.
