I'm working on a building which is largely made out of units which are prefabricated off site. The credit language for this, and the other VOC credits appears to imply that it applies only to adhesives / sealants / Paints etc used on the interior of the building (i.e., inside of the weatherproofing system and applied on-site). With the prefabricated structure, very few of these will be applied on site. I image they would therefore off-gas prior to construction. Can I assume that they do not have to be included in these credits?
The wording is slightly less clear for carpets and composite wood products - if these are also fitted off site would they be within the bounds of IEQc4.3 and 4.4?
