Daylight requirements for schools

Schools can use the ‘Department for Education Output Specification Technical Annex 2E Daylight and Electric Lighting’ from the Department for Education’s Output Specification to achieve compliance. Where the daylighting requirements in this standard have been achieved for all relevant rooms within the building, it can be assumed that the BREEAM daylighting requirements for two credits have also been met and therefore two credits can be awarded.

If 80% of all relevant room types (weighted by area) meet the daylighting requirements in the above document, then three credits can be awarded.
