A potential LEED project in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, had already begun demolition and some construction activities before a LEED AP was appointed. The extent of the work thus far has been land clearing, excavations and foundations preparation. The APs are now attempting to gauge whether the project is still eligible to target LEED V4 BD&C as some prerequisites will have to be urgently implemented. MRp2 is one of the prerequisites which may create a hurdle for the project.

Excavation construction activities have begun. Ethiopian best practice construction activities were observed but without a Demolition Waste Management Plan written or in place as this is by no means standard (or known) practice in Ethiopia. Would the project meet the prerequisite if the plan was developed now and implemented immediately on site?​

The project team is keen to hear thoughts and feedback as this will guide the project's LEED registration process.
