While ASHRAE 55 is primarily intended to apply to spaces used for sedentary or near-sedentary physical activity levels typical of office work, transient spaces like a lobby or stairwell will need to comply in most cases. However, if conditioning these transient spaces places is infeasible, projects are welcome to submit an AAP demonstrating how they are ensuring that transient spaces are maintained at a reasonable temperature.
#24876 - If the project team is not pursuing Feature 64, because that feature is N/A for the project, do the project's stairwells need to meet Feature 76?
No, if Feature 64 is not applicable for a project, then Feature 76 does not need to be met in the stairwells.
