Our project is primarily naturally ventilated and meets the requirements of Section 5.1 in non-core areas. We have added mechanical ventilation to the core areas which meet the requirements of ASHRAE 62.1.
In addition, mechanical ventilation has been added to a number of non-core spaces, primarily open offices and meeting rooms; however the fresh air supplied is not sufficient to meet the fresh air supply requirements of ASHRAE 62.1 in all instances.
If I understand correctly these spaces must provide at least 10 cfm per person to meet the prerequisite, and that if this is not possible the supplementary air ventilation system should not be installed. Is this correct?
