If water fixtures are not part of the project scope and are not considered for the LEED submission, can the project still pursue SSc3.2 due to existing showers in the base building?

I thought that I saw reference somewhere stating that a project cannot pursue SSc3.2 if WEp1 was excluded from the LEED submission. Hence you either pursue WEp1, or exclude WEp1 and all associated credits such as SSc3.2 due to the showers.

Thank you!
