Overview & background
There’s certainly no way we can quit growing, so the compromise becomes inventing new ways to reduce environmental collateral and build smarter, cleaner, and more conscious 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 having all of your files in one place, documenting through tasks and generating reports.
Upload your documents and required forms
Upload your approved submittals or any important documents into the Files section by clicking on the + New file button while on the Files tab. Now when materials are delivered to site or you need to verify things like 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 the plans or task.
Create tasks and attach photos to track procedures and materials used
Let's say you want to document your waste management program. You can track it all straight from your mobile device and no longer will have to go around with your camera and clipboard.
Create a task by clicking + New Task when you are on the tasks tab and add a title and category. Add a status, category and assignee under the task attributes. Add checklists by clicking + Checklist to make sure required guidelines are always met and attach any necessary files by clicking on the blue paper clip.
You can also add hashtags like #LEED or #waste to help filter your LEED tasks and generate a report later.
Then within the task attach 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 to the project admin, so they can then '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 have all photos and messages with a date and time stamp.
Click 'Generate Report' while on the Task tab and chose from a 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 attributes like your LEED hashtags.
You can then schedule it to go out on a weekly basis which is great if you are having to consistently update 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.
