Arc empowers project teams to measure, track and score the real sustainability performance of buildings and spaces. Arc makes these capabilities available to anyone, anywhere. Arc is part of the USGBC and GBCI family of organizations, dedicated to advancing USGBC’s market transformation mission. Getting started is easy:
Creating or loading projects into Arc is always free. There are no limits, barriers or costs associated with adding projects or team members. Arc takes a very flexible approach to the definition of “project.” Projects can be single family homes, whole commercial buildings, base buildings, tenant spaces, floors, campuses and more. These can all be represented as “building” projects in Arc. For example, a project can represent
This means that Arc users can create projects to address any combination of real estate management circumstances and sustainability objectives. Since there is never a cost for additional projects, Arc users have the ability to split projects into functional units (e.g., tenant vs. base building) or based performance differences (e.g., office vs. food service).
Arc users have five primary options to add projects:
Regardless of the method, all Arc users can upload an unlimited number of projects. They can also add an unlimited number of team members to those projects. Team members can be assigned a range of access levels, from administrators to read-only. Team assignments are made under the Project > Manage > Team menu. Assignments can be made for individual projects or in bulk for a whole portfolio.
Arc users can score overall project performance or a single performance category. The process is straightforward:
When these steps are complete, Arc will display performance scores based on LEED v4.1 criteria. Users can elect to see scores in Arc’s native 0–100 range or based on LEED’s point allocation. Users can toggle back and forth between these options in the Data menu, right under Building Settings. These capabilities are available for all Arc users.
Arc Essentials subscribers can do a lot more with scoring, including:
These provide flexibility in exploring performance over different periods of time and comparing to a wide variety of building performance standards.
Loading data and scoring performance provides the basis for celebrating leadership. Again, Arc provides users with options:
Scores, certificates and certification are backed up with dashboards, email updates and reports. These tools give Arc users an array of options for communicating performance.
The first thing to do is to jump into Arc, by creating or loading a project. If you need inspiration, start with your own home. After that:
