“On-site” means within the LEED project boundary.
If there are special circumstances and showers are located just outside the LEED project boundary, for example in a neighboring campus building, that scenario will be considered on a case-by-case basis if documentation is provided to confirm the following:
- That sufficient shower facilities have been provided to serve all occupants with access to the amenities, including individuals who are not part of the LEED project.
- The LEED project occupants will have full access to the shower facilities and that the building containing the shower facilities is open at least during the same hours as the LEED project, and
- The LEED project occupants are made aware of the shower access.
The project team may also elect to submit a CIR to confirm whether a non-standard approach will be accepted.
