GORD is proud to introduce the new advanced web-based version of Energia Suite – a simulation-based assessment tool designed to calculate building projects’ energy performance. Encapsulating years of research, Energia Suite comes with advanced features consolidating best practices from ASHRAE, CEN and ISO Building Energy Performance Standards. With its upcoming web portal, Energia will soon be accessible worldwide for energy labeling and green building assessments, catering to both GSAS and non-GSAS projects.

In line with this development, all GSAS Service Providers will be required to utilize GORD’s upcoming web-based platforms that include Energia Suite, Liquidos Suite (formerly Water Suite), and Arcadia Suite (formerly SEER Tool). These platforms aim to streamline the process of obtaining Energy and Water category scores for projects across Design & Build, Construction Management and Operations. These tools will be independent with flexible usage charges (TBC) and will not be part of the tools furnished with GSAS Service Provider license packages.

We encourage all Service Providers to familiarize themselves with these platforms once they are launched, to ensure a seamless transition and compliance with the updated certification process.

Effective from July 11, 2021

All GSAS CGPs are required to verify the information provided for projects prior to registering them on GSASgate. This information may include, but is not limited to, data related to project site area, built-up area and building use, etc. Incidents of misrepresentation, misleading and inaccurate information can lead to the issuance of demerit flag as per GSAS Demerit System.

It is the duty of all CGPs to preserve GSAS framework’s integrity by adhering to the principles laid out in GSAS Technical Guide and the code of ethics of engineering practice in handling and processing project information.
