I am working on a CS V.3 retail project. Rather than using the standard V3 SS 4.2 requirement, I'd like to use SS 4, Option B from the LEED for Retail Draft Reference Guide inlcuded below. Would you recommend submitting a CIR? Is there a precedent for allowing use of a draft requirement? Do you have any advice that would increase chances of getting the CIR approved?
LEED Retail Draft SS credit 4, Alternative Transportation Option B: comply with one of the options below.
1. Lockable bike racks: Provide at least 10 bike spaces.
2. Lockable Changing and Showers for Employees: Lockable restrooms or bathroom stalls may be used for changing areas.
3. Bike Maintenance Program.
4. Bike route assistance.
