FAQ F-00181
How do I know what type of documentation is accepted for a Design Review rating?

We’ve developed a short guidance document for project teams on what level of documentation is acceptable for Design Review – Green Star Design & As Built and Green Star – Interiors.

This Design Review Guidance provides answers to common questions asked by project teams. The Guidance - Submitting for Design Review document is freely available from the Resources page of our website.
