New Building 

The customisation of the GREEN STAR NEW BUILD CUSTOM GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS RATING TOOL will be based off the Public and Education Buildings (PEB) rating tool, the scope of customisation will include offices, clinics, schools, convention centres and libraries. The customisation will not include residential buildings and hospitals. Furthermore, the customisation will not include changes to benchmarks and the introduction of new assessment criteria, but rather modifications to the existing assessment criteria and requirements to enhance applicability and appropriateness to government procurement protocols, supply chain management and operating procedures. This may result in the streamlining of certification requirements and processes and the integration of government systems. The rating tool customisation will enhance the socio-economic elements of the rating tool.
