Hi guys,

we are currently in the pre-certification stage of a hotel + retail complex. This complex will host 6 restaurants / fast food joints which will all be leased and one restaurant that the project developer will run on its own.

I am aware that the project scope includes the restaurant of the building owner itself and that the requirements on the Kitchen appliances for the Indoor water use reduction prerequisite as well as the credit will apply.

But what about the future tenants? The project developer will provide all the main connections needed but will not include the kitchen fit-out, since it is opted to have a variety of international options. It is assumed that each cuisine has different kitchen equipment.

How is this handled and how can the intent of the credit be met? Since it is a NC certification do we just "ignore" the kitchen appliances since they technically don´t make the project scope?

Thanks in advance.

BR Chris
