Food storage

Food storage


To encourage the consumption of fresh foods by providing sufficient cold food storage to occupants.

If a project does not sell or provide food and/or beverages on a daily basis, it is considered in compliance with the precondition Features 38, 39, 40, 43 and 44. However, precondition Features 41 and 45 are still applicable to the project. Regardless of whether or not a project serves food on a daily basis, all Nourishment optimizations will be considered on the project scorecard and contribute to scoring.

All cold storage provided by the owner must meet the requirements - at a minimum, this must be available to all building staff in order to pursue this Feature. Food and beverage providers leasing space as a tenant of the building are excluded from these requirements. Commercial kitchens are not applicable.
