  MR Credit 1.2: Building Reuse—Maintain Interior Nonstructural Elements

When researching credit contributions of green building products on a new LEED® project of interest, it is also important to consider their reuse options and LEED® contributions in future renovations. Tile is one of the few surface coverings that can be salvaged in a major renovation. The reuse of tiled walls, floors, and ceilings from previous building tenants can contribute largely towards the acquisition of LEED® MR Credit 1.2. In this credit, 1 point can be obtained if at least 50% (by area) of the completed building involves the reuse of existing interior nonstructural elements (e.g., interior walls, doors, floor coverings and ceiling systems).
