Hi everyone,

The project area has two main buildings: a new construction building (office) and a renovation of an existing building (gym),  that is not planned for LEED certification. Just the new building will apply for LEED v 4 - NC certification. They are totally separate buildings in terms of air-conditioning and water systems but share the same landscape and parking lot. The excavation and demolition activities will involve the entire area at the same time; after that the new construction and the associated shared parking will be constructed, then the renovation will take place.

It is not clear to us how to determine the LEED boundary. Should it include the other building outside the LEED project scope or not? If not, how should the landscape area be divided?
