We are renovating spaces on the ground floor of an academic building. The primary renovation spaces are contiguous, however, there will be minor work in the ceilings, outside of the LEED boundary, in order to connect the space back to the mechanical rooms. The Owner has also added a few bathrooms to the scope. The bathrooms are in completely different portions of the building. How does this work with the requirement that "The LEED project should include the entire building and complete scope of work."?
I thought it would make the most sense to certify the contiguous ground floor spaces and as such, the LEED boundary would be limited to those spaces. The energy model would only address the spaces within the LEED boundary. But the materials and plumbing calculations would include all fixtures and materials that are being touched. Too complicated?
