Use these instructions as guide to filling out the LEED Online credit form for LEED-NC 2009 IEQc6.2: Controllability of Systems—Thermal Comfort. The images of the LEED Online credit forms shown here are samples from a "dummy" project, and are filled out to illustrate how to proceed—not necessarily with complete data, or data representing a real project. Please use this simply as a guide to the types of information you will need for this form.
Images of LEED Online credit forms are used here with the permission of the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).
A streamlined path only requires a signature from the licensed professional confirming credit compliance. If you choose the streamlined path, the remaining steps do not apply.
TIP: A general HVAC summary as well as a summary table listing usage type(s) for each regularly occupied space are required general submittals. Be sure to consider contextual overlaps when documenting compliance with IEQc6.1.
The floor plan should identify the location and type of thermal controls listed in the table above.
It is recommended to upload control schedules to document the control systems listed in the table above. If alternative documentation can better document the thermal control system, make the corresponding selection and upload that documentation.
If the project is mechanically ventilated in part or in whole, make the corresponding selection and have the mechanical engineer (or system design engineer) confirm the following two credit requirements.
If portions of your project are naturally ventilated, make the corresponding selection and confirm the natural ventilation requirement for the credit.
If your project is pursuing an alternative compliance path, make the corresponding selection and provide a comprehensive and thorough explanation of your projects approach, addressing why alternative compliance is necessary, how the alternative approach will meet the intent and requirements of the credit and confirming the thermal control system.
This step by step feature is really neat, but unfortunately the template layout has changed signifcantly since this was done. The LPE option no longer exists at all. Individually occupied spacesOccupied Spaces are defined as enclosed spaces that can accommodate human activities. Occupied spaces are further classified as regularly occupied or non-regularly occupied spaces based on the duration of the occupancy, individual or multi-occupant based on the quantity of occupants, and densely or non-densely occupied spaces based upon the concentration of occupants in the space. and group shared spaces have separate tables, and the tables look completely different.
Dewain, thanks for the reminder about this. We'll remind people of that through a note at the top.
Please consider MRc3, MRc4, MRc5, MRc6, and MRc7.
This could be daunting but you will get 5 credits for vertually one template.
I agree the step by step approach with screen shots is helpful.
Robert, thanks very much for the feedback. We'll factor this into our plans.
Thanks to the LEED User team for their effort. these snapshots are very useful !
I have to say that this type of information, that is, actually seeing what is expected to be filled in on the forms, is the most helpful information I've seen in a long time. And, before I had a project actually registered, the notion of documentation was always this daunting thing out there. For anyone who hasn't had the opportunity to work on a real project, this is fantastic to see.
especially for the complex templates. Thank you for the effort!
Thanks for the feedback—and you're welcome!
Let us know what other sample forms you'd like to see, or anything else. Post here, or use our feedback form.
This step by step presentation representing the actual templates is fantastic. What is your timeframe for doing more of these, and what credit order do you anticipate? In the meantime, is there any possibility that you can post images of the credits as they appear on LEED Online or advise where one can find these (vs. the older versions that the GBCI offers? I see that these are courtesy of USGBC- I would think it is in the interest of the USGBC to raise the veil and make these accessible.
You are a great resource. Thanks.
Hi John, we are planning on rolling out a few of these as a pilot over the next couple months.
Any requests on credits?
USGBC is not currently posting images or "sample templates" showing how the credits appear on LEED Online. You have to have a registered project to see those on LEED Online—can't help there, as much as we would like to.
