Clarification Interpretation Request
Integrated fit outs that achieved Office As Built certification
GBCSA confirms that monitoring and recording of waste, energy and water for the entire construction process during the period of the interior fit-out will satisfy the intent of credit.
As the interior fitout is being delivered as an Integrated fitout within the Building pursing a green star rating, the approach to declare all waste, water and energy consumption that occurs during the interior fitout activities is acceptable and a practical compromise to meet the intent of the credit.
As the development is being completed as an integrated fit-out and MAT-4 is targeted and achieved for the Office v1 or v1.1 As-built Certification, the GBCSA believes this approach is acceptable and a practical compromise meeting the intent of both the aim of the credits and the Interiors and Office As-Built Tools.
The GBCSA note the following will need to be demonstrated in the submission:
1) Energy and water consumption of the entire building has been monitored from construction commencement and this will continue until occupation of the building.
2) The consumption records, inherently, will include the figures of the tenant fit-out, in addition to these of base building.
Hence, the project team will demonstrate that requirements for energy and water monitoring and recording during the construction of the fit-out are achieved.
3) The project team proposes that the overall (base building and specific interiors fit-out) construction waste is monitored and recorded in its entirety by the main contractor for both scope of works (i.e. the base building and specific interiors fit-out).
The other fit outs that are not a part of the main contractors scope of work are outside the New Build assessment (base build) and outside of this specific Interiors fit-out assessment, and therefore their waste will not be monitored and recorded for this project
