We have designed a project in Mexico which includes 5 levels for parking garage but it is a robotic parking, we are including a small ventilation fan for each level that provides approx 0.1 cfm/sf. Is it necessary to comply with the 0.5 cfm/sf as required by the credit ?
Thanks in advance

You would need to show that the parking garage is not a source of pollutants. This may or may not be possible depending upon the actual design of your garage - you'll want to show that motors are not running when the cars are in the space which does not comply with the credit requirements. Whether this is possible will depend whether this space is separated from the space in which cars with running motors enter the garage (and whether ventilation in that space meets the credit requirements.)
