In our experience with this pilot, it was really the intent that stood out as the driving force behind the design decisions and there was less of a need to simply check boxes of pre-set requirements. This feature of the pilot allows teams to be truly creative in their design choices and allows a wide range of flexibility in how the strategies are implemented. We found that the examples provided in the credit language gave great starting ideas (and visuals if you look up the specific examples) of “qualifying” strategies and their respective documentation requirements (both qualitative and quantitative). Ultimately, we found that along with the design drawings / concept plans of the implemented strategies of the project, the “Design with nature documentation template” provided within the credit language simplified and clearly highlighted the rest of the “narrative” that needed to be completed. We recommend this credit for all projects and would love to see it, or an improved form of it, among the main IEQ or Innovation credits.
