There is a project having 4 stories with 8 equal areas, three of them are going to be registered for LEED. They include a R&D room (1), a manufacturing area (2) and a storage of manufactured products (3).
- Area (1): design, select and develop new products,
- Area (2): produce approved products and check quality of finish goods,
- Area (3): store manufactured goods.
In this case, can areas (2) and (3) be considered showrooms because they are used to demonstrate products and then they can apply LEED ID+C for CI? Or the entire building must use LEED BD+C rating system for NC?
Thank you and Best regards.
