ISv2.0 Economic Theme Industry Peer Review

Industry peer review is now open for the ISv2.0 Economic Theme. Industry peer review closes 26th Aug 2017.

If you would like to provide peer review, please read the following information:

ISv2.0 Economic Theme

Following the delivery of ISv1.0, a need was identified for the rating scheme to more comprehensively assess quadruple bottom line criteria including economics. 

In 2016, ISCA’s Economic Advisory Group (EAG) drafted the Economic Theme structure which was then released for developed. Arup were engaged to develop the theme in full.

The Economic theme consists of two categories, the Options Analysis and Business Case category and the Benefits category.  

Layout of the credits

ISv2.0 will better define the activities required for each rating. To do this, we are testing different layout ideas for the credits. These categories have different credits for the Planning, Design, As Built and Operational phases. As a result, it is important that when you are reading the credits, you make note of which phase it is relating to and your comments reflect the requirements of that phase. This approach is different to ISv1.2 which has one set of credits for Design and As Built and another for Operations.

We would like your feedback on this layout and any ideas for different approaches.
