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.

Sounds like the team is giving up on attaining certification. In that case you don't have to do anything, just let it lie there and eventually it will be closed out when the version of LEED it was submitted under sunsets.

Not really giving up. We've come to the realization that we just don't have the nessecary documenation from either the designers or the construction staff to address a couple of comments.
