In the requirements for this credit, the building exterior is defined as "everything outside and inclusive of the primary and secondary
weatherproofing system, such as waterproofing membranes and air- and water-resistive barrier materials".
My question is this: Is the primer for the waterproofing membrane included in this definition and therefore I can use a product that does not meet the VOC emissions guidelines?
Case example: Blueskin on Concrete faced wall. The blueskin is considered the waterproofing membrane but it requires a primer to be applied to the concrete before application. Would this primer be considered 'inclusive' of the waterproofing membrane?

I would consider this primer to be part of the exterior and part of the waterproofing membrane system.
