Who can see your viewing activity?
We will be happy to provide all participants with the presentation in PDF form.
Is the dedicated GBI Project Manager a W-2 employee of TGBI? How's their workload looking?
The project manager is a GBI employee.
Hi Joni, we will be happy to provide a copy of today's presentation in PDF form for all participants.
Hi Joni, the recording and PDF will be available via this link, https://thegbi.org/training/credited-courses/webinars/37/
Good afternoon. A couple of quick questions and apologies if I missed any notes earlier: Can you provide attendees with a link to the recording of this webinar for future reference?
Hello Athir - the recording will be available on the website here: https://thegbi.org/training/credited-courses/webinars/37/
Also, is it possible to get a copy via email of the presentation file used for this session for our reference?
Hi Athir, the PDF copy of today's email will also be available via the link provided by Kate. I will check to confirm that all participants will be emailed the link to access both the recording and PDF.
Lastly, would we receive a certificate of attendance for this session via email?
how long is the certification good for before recert is required? . As an example LEED NC Cert is good for 5 years. Thank you Megan. great overview
Hi Dolores, a PDF of today's presentation plus recording will both be available on our website here: https://thegbi.org/training/credited-courses/webinars/37/
Athir, yes, we are providing certificates of completion, if you have an AIA number we can report the credit for you as well. Please send your request to email@example.com.
Adam, the scoping checklist is a supporting document, the survey is only available once you have paid for the project registration.
Thank you Kate and Micah for your responses.
When the design team is hired to write an RFP (35%) for the govt. can we register without cost? The design team writing the RFP is responsible for the charrette phase, however, the winning Design Build team will be responsible for the completion and registration but will need to include the information from RFP development.
Hi Brett, compliance to the federal Guiding Principles works differently than the typical green building certification. Our Final DOD GPC NC Report (after construction) includes guidance and recommendations for Ongoing Compliance. What we've been seeing is that most DOD facilities self-assess their Ongoing Requirements for existing buildings after completing the Third-Party Certification (TPC) process for new construction.
Rick, thanks for your question, a project team could order a standalone project registration, and just pay for the project registration fee to gain access to the survey. The assessment could be ordered and paid for separately. The survey is only available once the project has been registered.
Does GBI also handle Guiding Principles for Sustainable Federal Buildings ? or is that FEMP?
Hi Adam, the Scoping Checklist is a much shorter version of the full survey. The Scoping Checklist is available for free to the public, and outlines the UFC 01-200-02 requirements at a high-level. The full DOD GPC NC Survey includes all requirements, including recommended documentation and informational references.
Hi Sankaranand, the "Guiding Principles for Sustainable Buildings" is the same as what we are discussing today. UFC 1-200-02 is DOD's set of requirements for meeting the Guiding Principles for Sustainable Buildings, per E.O. 13834
Dolores, if you already provided your number, do not worry about following up with an email. Our Client Services team will report your AIA credit and email you a certificate.
FEMP also provides a lot of great guidance for compliance to the Guiding Principles, and we reference several of FEMP's resources for project teams.
is there a DOD tool used to determine cost effectiveness?
Micah, thanks for the response. The checklists for the Sustainable Federal Buildings are different from the DOD checklists, and thus my question. 'Sustainable Federal Buildings' checklist has to meet a certain number of metrics based on New construction or Renovation. A building I am working on has both renovation and new construction, so we are not sure if there is a criteria for qualifying a building as new construction. This is critical for our team in order to meet the energy efficiency goals outlined in Guiding Principles
Hi Sankaranand, we have a "non-DOD" GPC NC Survey that sticks to the documents you are referring to. DOD has more stringent requirements in place for several of the Guiding Principles, which necessitated having two different GPC NC programs.If you're interested in our "non-DOD" GPC NC program, let me know and I can direct you to those resources.
Hi Jill, DOD recommends using one of the BLCC programs available here, https://www.energy.gov/eere/femp/building-life-cycle-cost-programs
Hi Micah, Sure, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
We have five defined justifications for when a requirement may be N/A. For building orientation, what we've typically seen is if the building's mission is tied to its orientation and thus cannot be changed. That would satisfy being N/A.
Hi Adam, preferably, we would delay the onsite assessment until you are ready rather than delaying the report after the onsite assessment.
if you communicate with your assessor and he/she knows that we are waiting on a commissioning report etc. after the onsite assessment, he/she will hold the report
we don't ever want to issue "not compliant" reports
Shelly, when you are ready for the Onsite Assessment you will let your GBI project manager know and they will connect you with your assessor. If travel is still suspended, we would offer the visit virtually, and provide a refund for assessor travel.
There will still be a fee for the 'Onsite Assessment' which will be handled virtually.
