Why apply for a Green Rating?
According to the World Green Building Council, the building and construction industry is responsible for 39% of the world’s carbon emissions. Therefore, investors and governments alike are increasingly conscious of investing in projects that are actively reducing their carbon emissions and environmental impacts. In order to guide the building industry toward reducing its environmental footprint throughout construction and the operations of a building, there are several organisations that regulate green building standards. One such standard is the Green Star rating. The more stars a building receives, the greater the efficiency and sustainability of the building. Green Star ratings offer excellent assurance for environmentally conscious investors and help the industry to reduce carbon emissions.
The Australian program NABERS has reported reducing carbon emissions by 7 million tonnes.
We support the building and construction industry to reduce carbon emissions. OmTrak Green Building Manuals help companies collate and manage the information needed to achieve Green Building Certification.
Streamline Green Building Applications
Organise information for NABERS & Green Star Ratings
One of the key requirements to obtain a ‘Green Star’ or NABERS rating is the provision of information for both accreditation and ongoing operation.The Green Star Accreditation for ‘Design Review’ and the ‘As Built’ rating requires supporting information to justify claims. The application process requires input from a multiple of design and build consultants, covering plans, reports, data modelling and tests. OmTrak allows projects to;
- Collaborate with assessors in OmTrak to manage Green Building Information
- Streamline the Green Building application process
- Create sustainable, accessible Green Building Information for on the ongoing life of the asset
Collaborate with the team.
Progressively Create Green Building Information
Green Building Manuals are created and reviewed progressively during construction inside OmTrak. Manuals are configured to meet the project specific green certification requirements. These can be different depending on the categories the project is applying for – e.g, there are 9 primary criteria and 30 sub criteria in Green Star.
From the onset, all stakeholders including NABERS and Green Building Council Assessors can review and approve content as it is uploaded. This saves time and reduces delays for applications.
- Configure manuals to suit green certification requirements
- Review building data before application lodgement
- Check document upload progress, throughout the project phases
Hit the Ground Running.
Accessible Green Building O&M Manuals
On project completion, the owner receives a high-quality digital handover of Green Building O&M Manuals in PDF format. The manual is accessible, organised, and fully indexed. It can be used for Green Star application and long-term management and sustainability of the asset.
