Zoning and control – PIR in circulation spaces

PIR controls canΒ be deemed compliant in circulation spaces such as corridors. In this instanceΒ ‘separate occupant controls’ are not required.

The requirement for user control is so that the building users can have direct control over their immediate work environment to ensure it is suitable for their personal needs.Β In circulation spaces, occupancy is transient and PIR control in these spacesΒ is acceptable.
