In such situations, the following options can be followed:
1. Include the shell & core area in the fully-fitted assessment, however this may have a negative impact on the assessment, as all aspects of this area would need to be assessed against the fully-fitted criteria.
2. Exclude the shell & core areas from the assessment. Note that this may require the BREEAM certificate to be endorsed to clarify that the whole building has not been certified.
It may be possible to assess the shell & core area separately, if required.
3. Wait until the shell & core areas have been fitted-out before certifying.
