New features on the Arc platform make it faster and easier to achieve LEED
The Arc platform helps project teams collect and manage data across five categories: energy, water, waste, transportation and human experience. Using this data, the platform generates a LEED performance score that can be used by project teams to submit for and achieve LEED certification or recertification.
Collecting the data needed to generate a score can sometimes be a time-consuming and potentially error-prone exercise, especially as teams work to meet LEED recertification requirements and provide up-to-date data year after year.
Arc recently announced that it has established partnerships with four organizations – including arbnco, Commutifi, Measurabl and QLEAR – that will help streamline and automate the exchange of operational performance data and simplifying the process to meet LEED certification and recertification requirements. These technologies make it easier to maintain high-quality data and achieve recognition for green building leadership.
These partners’ technologies and software have been integrated into Arc and are now available:
• Measurabl is an ESG data management platform that helps companies measure, manage and disclose sustainability performance. Arc users can leverage Measurabl to find potential LEED certifications and streamline recertification.
• arbn well is an indoor environmental quality (IEQ) monitoring software that uses sensors to provide real-time data on indoor environmental conditions including temperature, humidity, particulate matter, carbon dioxide, VOCs and more. This feature meets LEED v4.1 O+M and recertification requirements.
• Commutifi is a commuter scoring platform that scores commuting routes based on cost, time and carbon efficiency. Use Commutifi’s commuter registration tool and send data directly to Arc to meet LEED v4.1 O+M and recertification requirements for commuting surveys.
• QLEAR is a cloud-based IEQ platform that uses sensors to collect, measure and analyze data on air quality and improve building environmental performance. Project teams pursuing LEED v4.1 O+M can use QLEAR to quickly replace manual data entry on Arc with automated connections.
