I am in the process of certifying a CI space. Originally we were pursuing the credit for bicycle storage, however this was deemed infeasible when our request to dedicate bicycle ranks in a very large office space to our project space was denied. As a result for WEc1, we removed the showers associated with a gym in the building that bicyclers may use given that we were no longer claiming use of the facility for the LEED project space. However, our reviewer indicated we had to use the shower still because it could be used.

My question, is in accordance with the strict language of the credit, if the space does not claim use of a third-party shower (that we have no control of) for any purpose of this project, am I required to include it in WEc1?
