Un-Certify – Re-Certify Design Feature

3 years agoopen0
Design Optimisation Motivation (why we need this feature): There are times when a design may be certified "in-house", that require third party certification for a particular rating scheme (e.g. Green Star v1.2 & v1.3), and times when a minor update to a certified design is required. Under the scenarios feature, such updates and changes require remodelling of all strategies (scenarios), so it would be easier if designs could be uncertified to allow minor changes and then re-submitted for certification., Which regions need the feature?: Global, Australia and New Zealand, Which projects types does the feature support?: Buildings, Infrastructure, Fit Outs, Which ratings systems require the feature?: Possibly Green Star v1.2 & v1.3, or any rating scheme that requires 3rd party certification.,

Allow a design to be un-certified and re-certified. This might be needed if a new certification requirement arises (such as if a new rating scheme is being applied that requires additional certification checks), or if changes need to be made post-certification.


Unlock a certified design for changes, warn users this will:

  • Watermark existing saved reports
  • Track changes to a design when unlocked
  • Add a “Changes since review” section to reports generated moving forward with list of changes so audience of the report understands the models have been edited since the certification
  • Allow “Update Certification” option to send the design back through the certification process
