Green Star - Design & As Built Draft Credits

As part of the Green Star 2014 program of works, we have been working with our members and other industry stakeholders to develop draft criteria for the new Green Star — Design & As Built rating tool.

The draft credits and the structure of the new rating tool, can be better understood in the context of the following documents:

We recommend viewing the Green Star - Design & As Built Scoping Paper, prior to reading the draft credits below. The Scoping Paper will provide you with a number of concepts which will be beneficial to providing informed feedback on the draft credits.

The draft credits include the technical details, documentation requirements and the overall direction taken to achieving best practice sustainable outcomes. Due to the draft nature of these credits, there may be some inconsistencies in language and formatting. These will be reviewed prior to the final release of the rating tool. 

Project teams can also test the draft credits in their currently registered projects. For more information contact us.
