We are renovating approximately 13,000 SF (with is about 50% of the first floor) of a 177,000 SF building. The renovation includes interior square footage as well as some major envelope work at the first floor. Based on this scope, I initially believed that either BD+C or ID+C would work, but that BD+C might be a better fit, given the envelope work. That said, I have been pouring through the V4 MPR's, and it seems like BD+C might not be viable at all based on the quotations below. Can you confirm that I am interpretting this correctly? Also, I feel like there are other criteria that I am missing. Where else should I be looking?
Quoted from the ID+C MPR
- The LEED project should include the complete scope of work of the building or interior space.
- The LEED project can be delineated by ownership, management, lease, or party wall separation.
- If a single entity owns, manages, or occupies an entire building and wishes to certify a renovated portion of the building that is not separated by ownership, management, lease, or party wall separation, they may do so if the project boundary includes 100% of the construction scope and is drawn at a clear, physical barrier.
Quoted from the BD+C MPR
- The LEED project should include the entire building and complete scope of work. (Does this mean that I can no longer certify only a portion of the building under the BD+C system?)
- The LEED project should be defined by a clear boundary such that the LEED project is physically distinct from other interior spaces within the building. (This statement appears to conflict with the paragraph above)
