UPDATE: Spring Clean is now live! New improved credit templates are now available for download, as is a User Guide. These are mandatory for projects registered after 16th April, and optional for projects registered before then.
The NZGBC is continually looking for ways to improve the services we offer to GSAPs, project teams and building owners. In addition to the Credit Templates to use for submissions, NZGBC has developed the Submission Guidelines and Materials Calculator Guidelines, which are available to download from the website.
Please remember to contact NZGBC 2 weeks prior to submitting your Round 1 submission.
The templates are available for free download on the website by GSAPs (who are logged into the website). If you are not a GSAP and wish to purchase the templates, please contact us.
The NZGBC has conducted some testing of these templates prior to release but concede that there may still be some errors within them. Please alert us to any errors or issues, or any other feedback you may have by contacting us.
All Project Teams currently working on submissions are encouraged to use these templates. However, the use of these templates is mandatory for projects registering after 16th April.
The NZGBC has also created Submission Checklists for the 2009 tools to ensure that Green Star Accredited Professionals provide the information that the NZGBC Assessors require in order to conduct the assessment. The Submission Checklist for each tool is included within the Credit Template zip file.
In July 2009, The GreenHouse, The Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) Head Office, achieved a 5 Star Green Star - Office Interiors v1.1 certified rating under the GBCA's Office Interiors rating tool. The GBCA subsequently put the entire submission on their website to demonstrate the type and amount of documentation required when targeting an Office Interior rating. It is highly recommended that all Project Teams targeting a certified Green Star rating view this submission before beginning to compile their own.
