We have a project with two independent buildings on a single site. One will apply for LEED-NC and the other one will apply for LEED-CS.

We decided to apply for two different certifications since the two buildings have different structures (two separate volumes reaching 22 levels each from ground floor).

However our client is asking about water and energy supply. The most likely will be that one single energy and one single water supply will be provided by the local goverment. In this case, our question is:

Will providing submeters for energy/water consumption for each building be enough? This in order to demonstrate and quantify separately water and energy consumption.
