As Fieldwire continues to expand, we seek innovative ways to reduce environmental collateral and build smarter, cleaner, and with increased awareness of the world around us.
That’s where the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design program comes in, and most of you are surely familiar with LEED from your own projects.
The key to LEED documentation is being organized, which is where Fieldwire shines brightest. Stay on top of site sustainability, waste and hazard requirements, and material quality by storing all of your files in one place.
Upload your documents and required forms
You can either upload your approved submittals or any important documents into our dedicated Submittals tab (more info here: The Submittals Workflow in Fieldwire), or in the Files tab. Now when materials are delivered to site or you need to verify information such as the VOC levels in materials, you can quickly refer to the approved list.
Link approved submittals or any files directly to your plans with the hyperlink tool or within a task by clicking the blue paper clip. This way your team can quickly access them while viewing a plan or task.
Create tasks and attach photos to track procedures and materials used
Let's say you need to document your waste management program. Instead of using a camera and clipboard, you can track everything right from your mobile device.
Create a task by clicking "+ New Task" from within the Tasks tab, and add a title and category. Associate a status, category and assignee under the task attributes. Add checklists by clicking "+ Checklist" to ensure required guidelines are always met, and attach any necessary files by clicking on the blue paper clip.
You can also create and utilize hashtags such as #LEED or #waste to help filter your LEED tasks and generate a report later.
In this example, include photos of your recycling and separation bins to maintain a record of all project refuse by clicking on the camera icon.
Lastly, change the status of the task to 'Complete' and assign it to the project admin, so they can verify that all criteria has been met and properly documented through our two-step verification process.
Complete your LEED documentation process by generating a report
Now that you have documented everything within your tasks, you can generate a detailed report that will contain all of the relevant photos and messages with a date and time stamp.
Click 'Generate Report' from within the Task tab, and choose from a preexisting report template that you have already set up or create a new one. Next, you can sort and filter which tasks will appear on your report by choosing specific attributes, such as your LEED hashtags.
You can then schedule this report to be sent out to stakeholders on a weekly basis (particularly useful if you must consistently provide updates to your LEED consultant or inspector). You can always generate a one-time report as well.
As simple as that, you’ll have quality backup of your LEED documentation.
