Multiple Buildings Connected - Campus Approach vs Standard Approach
I am seeking clarification on whether to submit a project with multiple buildings as a campus or standard project. The project is a large approximately 500,000 sf Health Care Facility with a 20,000 sf Central Utility Plant and a Multi-level Parking Structure. The Health Care Facility is connected to the Central Utility Plant by means of an underground tunnel, and connected to the parking structure via an elevated bridge. The Central Utility Plant has a boiler, chiller, electrical rooms, generator room, control room, fire pump room, HVAC shop, pipe shop, tool shop, carpentry shop, electrical shop, IT/comm room, janitors room, storage room, two offices, break room, and men’s / women’s locker rooms (with toilet and shower). The parking structure has a men’s / women’s locker rooms (with toilet and shower).
Because the Health Care Facility is physically connected to the Central Utility Plant and the Parking Structure it is my understanding that this project can be submitted as a standard project as if it was one building. Therefore all credits would apply to the three buildings in aggregate and not independently. Please confirm that my understanding is correct.
