I am trying to apply for LEED certification as per LEED v3 2009 in India. My project profile is as follows:
1. It an existing building that has been in use for over a decade.
2. It underwent an HVAC retrofit 2 years back
3. The entire building is leased out to multiple tenants
Ideally, we would have to apply for LEED: Existing buildings O&M. But considering the entire building has been leased out to tenants, the owner does not have control over its O&M of the fitouts. Moreover, all the tenants have not connected to the new HVAC system. I wish to know if I can apply for LEED: Core and Shell under major renovations.
