LEED for Core and Shell
The LEED for Core and Shell rating system is designed for commercial office buildings, medical office buildings, retail centers, warehouses, and lab facilities in which project teams do not control all scopes of a whole building’s design and construction. It serves the speculative development market where the interior build out by a tenant or an owner does not exceed 50% of total leasable square footage. It covers the categories of concern such as becoming a sustainable site, water efficiency, the efficient use of energy, indoor environmental quality, and innovation in its design for drawing in light, the materials and resources used in its construction, and refreshing the indoor air quality.
