We are working on an art gallery project that has tight environmental requirements within the gallery spaces. The design team feel it is impossible to give occupants of the gallery any control over the thermal conditions within the space as it could negatively affect the exhibited items which would go against the purpose of the space. However, the IEQ space matrix suggests that gallery areas must comply with the credit requirements for IEQc7.2 if this credit is targeted. Other spaces within the building including offices, teaching spaces will meet the credit requirements. Please could we have some clarification if gallery spaces with tight environmental requirements can be exempt from complying with the credit requirements.
