Technical Clarification

Scope of delivery – ‘Conventional’, ‘Integrated’ and ‘Shell & Core’

Technical Clarification Number
MAT4-T-OB1-0386

Guidance
2012-01-17

The following provides guidance as to the scope of delivery for Conventional, Integrated and Shell & Core:

Conventional Delivery:
Common Areas - Finishes (e.g. floor coverings and paint) and services are applied to common areas (as applicable).
Tenant Areas - Tenancies are delivered with ceilings, finishes (e.g. floor coverings and paint), generic mechanical services (e.g. ducts from air supply and return risers, or other HVAC equipment, with generic control zone/diffuser/return layouts), generic electrical services (e.g. generic lighting layout) and complete wet services. The fitout to tenant areas is intended to be generic and non-tenant specific.

Integrated Fitout:
Common Areas - Finishes (e.g. floor coverings and paint) and services are applied to common areas (as applicable).
Tenant Areas - Tenancies are delivered with ceilings, finishes (e.g. floor coverings and paint), specific mechanical services (e.g. ducts from air supply and return risers, or other HVAC equipment, with fitout specific control zone/diffuser/return layouts), specific electrical services (e.g. fitout specific lighting layout) and complete wet services. The fitout to tenant areas are tenant specific.

Shell & Core:
Common Areas - Finishes (e.g. floor coverings and paint) and services are applied to common areas (as applicable).
Tenant Areas - Tenancies are delivered with no ceilings, floor coverings, lighting systems nor partition walls. Mechanical services are not installed within tenant areas, with ducts from air supply and return risers finishing within 1m of the face of the riser (for central air systems), or no other tenant-side systems installed (e.g. indoor units). A raised floor or underfloor air distribution (UFAD) system may be installed in a Shell & Core scenario provided floor coverings are not installed. No fitout is provided in a Shell & Core scenario.

 

Credit Interpretation Request

Partial fit-outs

Credit Interpretation Request Number
MAT4-C-OB1-0351

Ruling
2011-11-17

The Credit Interpretation Request (CIR) seeking partial fit-outs with modular ceilings, HVAC and lighting systems in conjunction with lease agreement requirements/restrictions for tenant fit-outs, to be defined as ‘integrated fit-out’ for the purpose of the credit is denied. Such partial fit-out delivery scenarios do not meet the aim of credit as tenant re-fit can occur as per conventional fit-out delivery, regardless of the initial fit-out being retained in entirety or removed (i.e. original fit-out materials stored).
