We are relocating into a half-floor space (5,000 sq.ft. approx.) of a multi-story commercial office building, located in Mexico. This building was constructed over 10 years ago. It accounts for large central units (water cooled centrifugal chillers) with a CFC-based refrigerant. Each floor utilizes discrete air handling units (AHU -which need no refrigerant) that run on chilled water from the central units. Our fit-out project includes an underfloor air distribution system, which we are connecting to the present AHU. Hence, changing to non-CFC refrigerants does not apply to our project's (individual floor) equipment. Furthermore, an eventual such change would demand a full replacement/conversion of all central HVAC&R equipment. Understanding the limits of our scope of work and the given system, we ask for confirmation that this prerequisite is either considered as accomplished or discharged in our project.
This credit requires a declaration that there are no CFC-based refrigerants installed or renovated within the LEED-CI project scope. As described, the CFC-containing chillers are outside of the scope of work for the proposed tenant buildout and will not prevent the achievement of this credit. Applicable Internationally; Mexico.
