Initial fit-out vs alteration

Project Location: United States

I have a project that is a tenant fit-out in an existing building. The tenant spaceTenant space is the area within the LEED project boundary. For more information on what can and must be in the LEED project boundary see the Minimum Program Requirements (MPRs) and LEED 2009 MPR Supplemental Guidance. Note: tenant space is the same as project space. has been occupied by previous tenants in the past but was completely demolished of any previous tenant fit-out prior to my project leasing the space. Would my project fit-out be classified as initial fit-out or alteration on the PIf2 form?

I have the same question. Our project involves demolition of 75% of a floor, and then a fit-up with new partition walls. Not sure if this falls under alteration or fit-up, and cannot seem to find any clarification between the two on the USGBC website.

I too have the same question. What is the LEED definition of alteration verses fit-out?

I too am wondering what the difference between initial fit-out (is that empty shell area that does not need to be demo'd?) and alteration (area that involved demolition work? )

I asked USGBC and was directed to this document:
If you go to resources and search for "Rating System Selection Guidance", it should come up.

Here is the definition from that document:

Alteration: Includes improvement work in addition to the rearrangement of any interior space by the construction of non-bearing walls, partitions, ceilings, and floors, the addition or elimination of any interior door or window, the extension or rearrangement of any mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) or service system (peripheral or core), and the installation of any additional equipment or fixtures. Typically work does not extend to the primary structural components, exterior shell, or roof of the building.

Interior Fit-Out: The installation or application of interior finishes, floor and ceiling systems, non-bearing partitions, furniture, interior doors and windows, and other components that make a space fully usable for the purpose it is intended. A complete interior fit-out is such that no further construction work is needed or intended for occupancy.

Sewage Conveyance from the site

My project is in Singapore and it is a norm here that all the building sewage will be connected to the public utility drains and send for treatment, reclamation & disposal.
I have been requested to provide details about how the sewage would be conveyed from the site for a LEED CI project?.

1) Is it norm to provide sewage conveyance details for a LEED CI project?

2) All the toilets are outside my LEED project bondary (though i would be counting the toilet fixtures for my WE credits) and provided by the base building. What information or documentation should suffice for the clarification?
