I am currently answering review comments from certification unit for C&S office buiilding. We are struggling with exterior lighting issue, because proposed external lighting power appears to be greater than in the baseline, yet after consultation with Designers no mistake was found (high density power luminaires  in short distance from each other were used). Is there any exception, additional lighting power allowance or any way to gain compliance with LEED requirements, as we cannot see possibility to reduce proposed external lighting for the moment?

Best Regards
