ICS Code (Services in general): 03.080.01
ICS Code (Physical planning. Town planning): 91.020
ICS Code (Buildings in general): 91.040.01
scope:

1.1 This specification provides requirements for demonstrating that a building's location is in sufficient proximity to a range of establishments, services, and other amenities (referred to as "neighborhood assets" in this specification) such that the likelihood is increased that the building's occupants will walk to their destinations when conducting errands or other typical activities.

1.2 This specification addresses a single indicator regarding the environmental performance related to a building's location. It provides one option for evaluating whether a building is located in such a way as to minimize the impacts associated with occupants' travel.

Note 1: The indicator in and of itself is insufficient to imply any level of "sustainability" for the building or the neighborhood. Similarly, a building's failure to meet this specification does not necessarily signify a lack of sustainability. Other indicators may be more appropriate for that building or region; those indicators are outside the scope of this specification.

1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.

1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
