We're in a situation where two existing buildings, Building A and B, are in the same campus. Building A is already LEED EB:O&M certified as an individual project (no campus credits) while we're currently working on LEED EB:O&M for building B. Is it possible to implement the EB:O&M campus approach at this point? For instance, if Building A, as an individual project, has already claimed most of the surrounding landscape in its boundary, is it possible to reclaim the same landscape in the campus boundary shared by Building A and B?

Simon, A bit late to reply no doubt, but this reply (and hopefully a reply from you) may help others. Several problems come to mind as you undertake the second EB. 1. Double dipping-If you've already gained credits for landscaping, as an example, in one building, you can't reuse those credit again in another building. 2. At the stage you were I can't see GBCI giving campus approach to the second building. My path would have been -continue with individual, even though you'll gain less points, get the project completed, then re-certify under campus approach.
