Project location: Russia

4 thumbs up
The project has a covered parking. The Owner is chosing the cover material and considers to implement glazing for the cover (SRI value is 30, SHGC is 50). Is this decision available for the purpose of SSc7.1 credit, option 2?

Nina, yes, that works for Option 3, which requires an SRI of at least 30.
