The relevant areas for the criteria apply only to areas where users are expected to have control.
For instance, this means that areas intended for the general public, or a shop floor would not be expected to have lighting controls.
The general principle which applies to user access to general environmental controls (heating, cooling, ventilation) may also apply to access to lighting controls. See KBCN0170.
However, the the exact approach may differ between the two types of systems and assessor judgement must be used to determine compliance.
In all cases zoning is required in all areas of the asset where specified in the assessment criteria. Please refer to the specific requirements of the applicable BREEAM standard to interpret this guidance appropriately.
