Hi, all

Our team had a technical advice from USGBC reviewer, the comment is like below...
" The LEED form indicates a total roof area (excluding mechanical equipment, photovoltaic panels, and skylights) of 23,214.31 square feet, whereas the project building footprint reported within PIf2: Project Summary details is 30,203.32 square feet, and no explanation of this apparent discrepancy has been provided."
Our building is an atypical shape building, so a total roof area could not match with building footprint area...I don't understand why reviewer commented like that. should these areas coincide with each other? How could I handle this situation?
