Does your project have a gymnasium that is used only for athletic, auditorium or stage uses? If so, your project may be able to exclude the gym from the credit requirements for IEQc8.1.

The USGBC released new space type classifications, available here: under the Rating System page. Scroll down to the first item under IEQ, and open the excel spreadsheet. Read the Overview statement, and then click on the second tab at the bottom, "BD+C and ID+C Table". Look under Column X, Rows 48-49.

If the gym is also used as an assembly space, please also see Column X, Rows 10-13 to see if the assembly use would necessitate inclusion in the credit requirements. Gyms used for assembly purposes or social activities must be included in the credit requirements.
