dear all,

Credit IEQc9 requires that all occupied spaces should meet the requirements of HVAC background noise and refers to 2011 ASHRAE handbook, chapter 48, table 1. This table gives the maximum HVAC background noise per space for different room types. What if the roomtypes given in my project do not match the room types given in table 1 of the 2011 ASHRAE handbook?

I could look for simularity between the given room types and the used roomtypes, but interpretation could be a risk.Who can help?

Thank you in advance.
