What is SmartScore Certification?
SmartScore certification is a program that assesses buildings based on criteria broken down into two main sections:
1. User Functionality
2. Technical Foundation
Understanding the Criteria for SmartScore Certification
User functionality criteria include building access, air quality, energy reporting, and building cleaning. In contrast, technical foundation criteria span across elements such as network infrastructure, intelligent building strategy, and building systems internet connection. To achieve SmartScore certification, a building must meet a set number of credits and minimum requirements, which vary depending on the level of certification.
Key Outcomes of a SmartScore Certified Building
The certification program has five standard levels of certification, including Silver, Gold, and Platinum, along with Pre-certified for development projects only. The program also has a defined prerequisite of certification criteria for each level. Considerations are made for each measure against user stories, purpose, problem, and benefits to help users to understand the deliverables best.
