We are working on an office project were 80% of the area is leased to a single tenant and 20% is uleased yet. The project will be certified under New Construction after a request of the main tenant.
Now it is unclear how we should handle the unleased area in the certification. Especially in the IEQ category we are worried about some credits.
For example IEQc6.1: Controllability of Systems - Lighting:
All occupants in the leased area will have task lighting (about 80% of all FTEs). To receive the credit at least 50% of the FTEs in the unleased area need task lighting, too. After it is unleased, we can not show compliance yet. Is a tenant lease agreement necessary there or is there any other general approach?
Thank you for your help!
