This tool puts the power in the hands of the tenant, allowing each tenancy to have their unique environmental design initiatives fairly and independently benchmarked. The tool rewards high-performance tenant spaces that are healthy, productive places to work; are less costly to operate and maintain; and have a reduced environmental footprint.

This tool also caters for volume certification by pre-certifying data sheets and certain specifications for fit-outs that get rolled out to several branches.

Our Interiors rating tool has been developed to cater for a broad range of tenancies, including but not limited to office, retail and hospitality fit-outs.

Registration Process

Once you have selected the tool and met the criteria you need to register your project via GBCSA Certification Engine. You will need to create a new profile if you do not have an existing one. Your account is valid for a 12 month period from activation to close out / final results.

In order to register the project you will need all the project and client details. A draft pro-forma invoice will then be generated and sent to the client & AP for verification. This is followed up by an official pro-forma invoice.

All further information is then channeled through the certification engine and the assigned GBCSA case manager for your project. 

Once payment has been received and a signed certification agreement been uploaded to the engine, the project is considered fully registered and can be marketed as “aiming to achieve x stars”.
