7.11, 7.12, 7.13 : Promoting Health Through Design
Q: If a project goes above the mandatory requirement to comply with one of Criteria 7.11, 7.12 & 7.13, and complies with two of the three criteria, would the project earn eight points total or eight points for each criterion?
A: All projects must comply with at least one of either Criterion 7.11, 7.12, or 7.13. No points are available for meeting this mandatory requirement. If a project complies with a criterion 7.11, 7.12 and 7.13 in addition to meeting the mandatory requirement, it will earn eight points for each additional criterion.
I.e. A project that complies with Criterion 7.11 earns zero points and meets the mandatory requirement for Promoting Health Through Design. A project that complies with Criterion 7.11 AND 7.12 meets the mandatory requirement for Promoting Health Through Design and earns eight points. And a project that complies with 7.11, 7.12 AND 7.13 meets the mandatory requirement for Promoting Health Through Design and earn sixteen points.

A: Yes, project teams may choose more than one of the Methods available in the criterion; A, B, C or D, to enable project building configuration and utility provider(s) to share energy and water data per the criteria.
