CS v3 - Appendix 4 - Tenant Lease or Sales Agreement
Appendix 4 seems to be new to the C&S methodology and I am having trouble interpreting it. My understanding is that all “Case C” prerequisites will always need to be enforced via a tenant lease agreement if the C&S owner does not have control over the tenant areas for the prerequisites content, since Case C says "Submittal documentation for Case C credits must include data from the entire project building."
Is this correct?
To give an example: IEQ Prerequisite 2 - Environmental Tobacco Smoke (ETSEnvironmental tobacco smoke (ETS), or secondhand smoke, consists of airborne particles emitted from the burning end of cigarettes, pipes, and cigars, and is exhaled by smokers. These particles contain about 4,000 compounds, up to 50 of which are known to cause cancer.) Control. We are working on a retail center in the Middle-East, which will have restaurants and cafes. Smoking is typically allowed in restaurants and cafes in the country. The Owner will be enforcing a smoke-free policy in the core & shell building.
The question is: Do we also need to enforce IEQ Prerequisite 2 in all tenant areas, including the restaurants? Or can we ignore the tenant areas since this is a C&S project? Appendix 4 is not very clear, it seems to say that it is
optional to have lease agreements. However, IEQ Prerequisite 2 falls under Case C credits which must include data from the entire project building…
Can we obtain the C&S v3 certification knowing that most restaurants/cafes will allow smoking, or do we need to enforce ETS Control requirements of dedicated smoking areas via legally binding agreements?
