GSAS Mosques

The intent of GSAS Mosques is to assess and rate the design of mosques. The criteria and measurements focus on providing healthy and sustainable mosques for worshipers and occupants and range from a measurement of energy consumption to the thermal comfort provided to prayer halls.

In other building typologies, certain GSAS criteria require multiple typical occupancy areas to be measured, such as offices and reception areas for Commercial buildings. For GSAS Mosques, the only occupancy type considered for the purposes of assessment are prayer halls. If the design for the mosque includes separate buildings not intended for congregational prayers, such as a residence for an Imam, only the building containing the congregational worship areas will be assessed and rated under GSAS Mosques. Other buildings within the development or compound will be assessed separately under the appropriate GSAS building typology.
