Projects may exclude up to 10% of the total gross building floor area from the LEED project boundary, which will apply consistently throughout the submission except in EQ Environmental Tobacco Smoke, where the entire building must be considered. Projects may take an additional 10% exemption on a credit-by-credit basis if it is not possible to gather the necessary tenant data for these credits, or the applicant does not have control over the required element (this additional 10% may not be applied to the EA Prerequisite Minimum Energy Performance). The specific spaces excluded as part of the 10% can vary by credit. Project teams must clearly note which spaces have been excluded in which credit when preparing documentation for certification.

Com. 298. The technical meaning of the premises in a deed, is every thing which precedes the habendum. 8 Mass. R. 174; 6 Conn. R. 289. Vide Deed.
