Fruits and vegetables
To promote the consumption of fruits and vegetables by making fruits and vegetables easily accessible to occupants.
Yes, fresh fruits and vegetables can be provided through an additional vendor or provided within the vending machines (e.g., dried fruit, non-fried vegetable chips). Please note that all foods must also comply with Feature 39.
If a project does not sell or provide food and beverages on a daily basis, it is exempt from most Nourishment preconditions. However, Features 41 and 45 may be applicable to your project.
No, the Nourishment requirements are only applicable to food provided by the project owner or provided by a vendor who is under contract with the project owner, which for a Core and Shell project the project owner is the building developer. Tenants within the building do not need to meet these requirements.
If the tenant decided to pursue the New and Existing Interiors or the Retail Pilot certification, then the nourishment feature requirements would be applicable.
IWBI recognizes the various cultural differences in meal practices and therefore recommends the project to submit an Alternative Adherence Path (AAP) to confirm the project meets the feature intent for the Nourishment concept. In addition, please review the already accepted AAP's for each nourishment feature.
This includes all foods and beverages supplied by the project owner, or by a vendor under contract with the owner, including items sold or provided in the cafeteria, in vending machines, at a coffee bar, and items available to occupants in the kitchen/pantry area.
Yes, if the food served in the eating area is provided daily under the direction of the owner, all of the Nourishment preconditions need to be met by the project regardless of where the food is prepared.
If no food is sold or served within the eating area or break area, most of the Nourishment precondition features would be considered out of scope. However, features 41 and 45 may still be applicable to the project.
No, if food is not catered on a daily basis, most of the Nourishment features are considered out of scope. However, features 41 and 45 may be applicable to your project.
