I’m contacting you regarding a project in the center of Paris. The client wants to go with a LEED certification on this project. The project is an existing building and the major refurbishment development aims to refurbish office spaces (5355m²) and retail space (2030m²).
The future tenant is known by the owner.

My question is regarding the certification type:
- regarding the office spaces : the owner is going to do the entire refurbishement of the surface. Therefore from our understanding the scheme to go for is major renovation.
- regarding the shop space on the other way the future tenant want to do his own fit out certification.

Is it possible for the future tenant to achieved this if the shell of the shop spaces is not Leed certified?

Do my client need to do a core&shell certification on the shop space ?

Thanks for your advice
