Shell & core assessments – elements outside the scope of the base-build

For shell & core developments, all building elements which fall within the developer’s scope of work should be assessed as set out in the technical manual. For any aspects which can be justifiably considered as falling within the future tenant’s scope of work, compliance can be demonstrated using Shell & Core Option 1 or Option 3.

Where relevant building elements are not within the scope of the base-build, but are required to ensure the robustness of the completed building following fit-out, the developer is not expected to install these. These options cannot, however, be used to impose onerous requirements on the future tenant, which could reasonably have been included in the base-build.
