BREEAM - thermal cofort in naturaly/hybrid ventilated buildings

1 post / 0 new

Dear Experts,

I get to know that in BREEAM methodology project can get point if there is
assessment of thermal comfort using PMV/PPD index.

But, if my understanding is good, PMV/PPD index is not appropriated for
thermal comfort assessment in residential buildings with natural or hybrid
ventilation. One thing is atapdive process an onother problem with air
velocity assumption.

Could you comment this issue?
1) Am I right?
2) Is it possible to get this point for such buildings?

Kind regards,
