Dear All,

according to reference guide, 1 point can be achieved by implementing the Lighting Control Strategy. This strategy states that dimmable or multilevel lighting must be provided for 90% of occupant spaces.

Two questions:

  1. can we assume that occupant spaces referred in this credit is the same as occupied space refereed in the glossary (enclosed space intended for human activities, excluding those spaces that are intended primarily for other purposes, such as storage rooms and equipment rooms, and that are only occupied occasionally and for short periods of time) ?
  2. dimmable or multilevel control must be accessible to space occupants ? Or, in special cases (as can be the case of a production zone) is it acceptable that this controls are only accessible for the O&M team (e.g., at BMS level) ?
