BREEAM USA In-Use requires each tenanted space to be assessed separately for each question and to determine the final score based on the tenanted space with the lowest score. An example of this question type is HEA 06, for which, to select an answer option, the relevant requirement needs to be met by all tenanted areas. For example, if there is an asset with five tenants where four tenants provide mains connected water provisions, but only one provides access to non-mains connected water provisions, only one credit can be awarded.
However, this approach is not required in the case of questions where credits are awarded based on a percentage of compliance. In these cases, Assessors should consider the entire assessed area as a whole. An example of this question type is WAT 04, where the percentage of low-water use fittings, regardless of their location in the building, is assessed in one calculation.
