Implementation in the Design Process:
In predesign and early design, include performance criteria in programming documents. Perform an ecological matrix analysis to demonstrate the planned means of occupant control over environmental quality variables under their routine and foreseeable extreme variations .Take care to ensure that occupants are not be put in recurrent uncomfortable conditions requiring continual adaptation is necessary to maintain comfort.
Consider personal control criteria impact on the schematic design. Check that there are no obvious limits on personal control strategies in the schematic design and that personal control strategies are incorporated in the general design of building.
In the design documentation and documentation of compliance for this phase, call out the personal control strategies enabled by and included in the design. Include testing of occupant control options over indoor environmental qualities in the Commissioning Plan.
In the construction documents and construction administration and buyout of the project, verify achievement of performance criteria by exercising the range of occupant control strategies available onsite per the Commissioning Plan (see P.4 Design and Construction Commissioning for Commissioning Plan.)
During occupancy, log complaints or shortcomings noticed in lack of personal control over indoor environment (see P.5 Operations Commissioning for record keeping procedures.)
