As the Certification and Training Manager at Sintali, I look at a lot of EDGE assessments every day. And what is interesting is that regardless of where the EDGE assessments come from geographically, there are typically common challenges.
Today, I want to share with you my top tips for filling out your EDGE Assessment that will make things easier and quicker for you to move through the EDGE certification process.
Some of these may seem self-explanatory but you would be surprised how often issues come up. Getting into the habit of checking these items properly during the EDGE Self-Assessment period will help you streamline your workflow and decrease the back and forth between yourself, the auditor and the certifier.
There are a few things you need to pay close attention to when starting off a self-assessment.
For the EDGE assessment to work, the EDGE App needs as accurate design data as possible in order to model your building as correctly as possible.
All the magic in EDGE happens in the three tabs: Energy, Water and Materials.
Getting your calculations right and clearly shown in an audit trail can reduce a lot of back and forth between you and the auditor.
Ready to push the Submit for Audit button? Pause and make sure to check your work (just like you would on your school exams; or not). Once you submit your EDGE Assessment for audit, the project will be locked and you cannot make any more edits, at least until you get feedback from your auditor. Make sure to triple check before submitting for audit, especially details as to whether your project is a new or existing building, subproject name, or quite simply if it is the right building typology.
Enjoy your auditor’s positive feedback!
