We attempted an Innovation in design credit for our project. The strategy for this was reusing existing foundation elements in the support of a new 18 story high rise building. The existing foundation elements (piers, etc) were placed and then the project permit was revoked and the project abandoned. The foundation elements sat exposed to weather for 9 years before our new project came along.
This credit was denied in its first review during the PreCertificaton Final Review. The reviewer states that the strategy aids in the achievement of MRc1.1 Building Reuse. We did not see this as a viable option given that there never was a finished building in place to reuse.
Will this get reviewed again in the Design/Construction Review?
Can I contact by email to further clarify our intent/strategy?
Do I have to pay / enter the Appeal process since it was Denied?
