The ‘Building Information’ credit is designed to ensure that building managers and users are properly informed about the best ways to operate their building and its systems in order to achieve optimum building performance.
The credit requires that building information be provided to those that operate and manage the building (facilities managers), and those that use and occupy the building (users). For facilities managers, current and well maintained operations and maintenance manuals that cover all building systems must be in place.
For building users, relevant information must be provided, such as the provision of signage that informs tenants about the best way to operate building systems.
Points are awarded where relevant information is provided, where there are effective processes in place to ensure information is kept up to date, and that users are kept informed.
