" "Components contributing to MRc1.2 include finished ceilings, walls, doors, flooring, and built-in case goods. Components should be divided into 3 categories for calculation: Prior Condition, Completed Design, and Retained Components Area. Prior Condition includes the total finished area that existed before the project began, Completed Design in the total finished area in the completed design (including all new and retained elements), and Retained Components Area is the area of components listed above that were in the space under both Prior Condition and Completed Design. Previously exposed elements that were finished as part of the project should not be counted in the Retained Components Area since the original element was altered/added to during construction. For example, an unfinished ceiling covered with a lay-in ceiling after construction would not be able to contribute to credit. Applicable internationally." "None" "None" "X"
