My company completed a project in 2020 that was to be LEED certified (was Silver but the designers later realized midway thoughthe project that it wasn't possible) and I was brought in to try and help get it closed out after mutiple people attempted to assist.

The project was submitted to the USGBC as a joint design and construction review and after reviewing the reviewers comments the project will not be able to be certified due to design and construction documentation issues. So my questions is do we still need to go though the process of addressing the reviewer comments  to close out the project? Do we just submit without addressing the comments? Or just leave the project in the system as opened (I don't think this one would be the case)? 

I'm searching what to do in this case but haven't seen anything as of yet.
