View out – eye level

BREEAM defines an adequate view out asĀ being at seated eye level (1.2 ā€“ 1.3m) within the relevant building areas. However, where occupants will not have the option to be seated, for example in some industrial operational areas where the work being undertaken requires occupants to remain standing, the height of the view out can be changed accordingly to suit the eye level of occupants.Ā All other view out requirements haveĀ to be met and clear justificationĀ provided for changing the height/level of the view out.

In some relevant building areas, occupants may not beĀ sitting down to undertake tasks. Allowing the view out height requirements to be changed accordingly ensures building occupants gain maximum benefit from the view out.Ā
