Five years ago my project building were LEED EB:OM certified and now with new tenants and a renovation taken place we are recertifying. Since the building is renovated with new HVAC system, do we need to do the ASHRAE level 1 and 2 audit? We have commissioning reports done recently for this system, could this be enought to show compliance?

Recert projects must follow the recertifcation guidance document. It can be downloaded at: http://www.usgbc.org/resources/leed-existing-buildings-operations-amp-ma...
The Level I walk-through must be performed every five years. If the Level I was performed less than five years ago, but more than two years ago, the original Level I report simply needs to be updated with the current building information.
I do not believe the LEED reviewer would allow the commissioning reports to take the place of an ASHRAE Level I report.
Hope this helps!
