IS in the Planning/ Pre-design Phase
Recently certified ratings demonstrate that engaging in the early stages of a project is a lead indicator for successful sustainability outcomes.
The IS Planning Guidelines focus on the project stages that occur prior to the design stage and clarify what sustainability aspects to consider and how to embed sustainability at the outset of the asset life cycle. For proponents considering proceeding with an IS rating, there is a coherent linkage with specific credits to inform asset appropriate actions.
IS in Planning is an in-house alignment workshop to actively address the growing desire to influence early decision making and deliver better sustainability outcomes in infrastructure. The Planning Guidelines provide the basis for this 30-hour workshop for Development teams to assess current practices and determine the best approach to drive improved sustainability outcomes from project initiation and planning through design, construction and operation.
See below IS Workshop Outline
By the end of this workshop, participants should be able to determine the best approach to drive improved sustainability outcomes from the development/ project planning phase through design, construction and operation using the IS rating scheme.

This short interactive course provides guidance on how embedding sustainability into planning process will enhance the application and outcomesof the IS rating scheme, and how the scheme can support the project planning process.
