We are working on a warehouse/office remodel. Due to the extent of the remodel we are pursuing LEED NC for the project. Currently Phase 1 of the project is under construction. We will be registering the project for Phase 2 and must achieve LEED Silver due to funding requirements.

We are compiling a change order to install a small portion of the Phase 2 ductwork during Phase 1 due to the location of the Mechanical Room. Silver is going to be extremely difficult for us to achieve so I would like to be extra cautious and make sure the installation of this ductwork will not adversly affect our chances of obtaining certification.

The scope of work includes only installing ducts in one room and not connecting either end to registers or equipment.

All that being said, are there instructions you would recommend we include to the Contractor/Subcontractor to ensure we do harm compliance requirements?
