Section 306 [DSA-SS] Voluntary Measures
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
For public schools and community colleges, Appendix A5, Nonresidential Voluntary Measures, is provided as a guideline to further encourage building practices that improve public health, safety and general welfare by promoting the use of building concepts which minimize the building's impact on the environment, promote a more sustainable design and high-performance educational facilities.
The optional provisions of Appendix A5, Divisions A5.1 through A5.5, outline means of achieving enhanced construction levels by incorporating additional measures that exceed the mandatory code.
The measures outlined in Chapter 5, Section 5.410.2 for Commissioning and Section 5.410.4 for Testing and Adjusting are not adopted as mandatory standards by the DSA; however, are referenced here as optional verification practices that are encouraged and recommended to ensure performance, comfort, system durability, reliability, indoor air quality, and efficiency.
