Recently I saw the following preliminary-review comments on a colleague’s project:
2. The Rockfon Chicago Metallic Drywall Grid, Chicago Metallic 1200, and Infinity/Infinity Standard products have been listed in the Calculator as inherently nonemitting, but manufacturer's documentation has not been provided to support this claim.
3. The TGP Firelite NT Ceramis, Imola Micron 2.0 Porcelain Tile, and Texas Building Products CMU products have been listed in the Calculator as inherently nonemitting, but manufacturer's documentation has not been provided to support this claim.
Provide manufacturer's documentation demonstrating that the products listed above are inherently nonemitting.
Our office serves in different capacities including documenting LEED items assigned to the contractor. The projects we are involved with routinely include ceramic/porcelain tile, metal &/or stone transition strips, ceiling grid, and solid stock wood, and we have not included documentation demonstrating that these products are inherently nonemitting. Since the LEED v4.1 criteria was issued (knock on wood) our office has had all BPDO and Low-Emitting materials documentation approved for the 7 projects submitted during the preliminary-review phase.
Is anyone else being asked to provide documentation for materials included in the Inherently nonemitting sources https://www.usgbc.org/leedaddenda/100002195 description?
