Redesigned Building Rating Website Improves User Experience

June 30, 2014 By Karen Henry

buildingrating-energy-manageThe Building Rating website has gone through a comprehensive redesign with the user’s experience in mind.

It is now fully responsive, with a layout and navigation that adapts to a range of devices, from mobile phones to desktop computers.

Building Rating has four primary features:

Learn about a jurisdiction: An interactive map reveals the jurisdictions (cities, counties, states, or countries) focused on improving the energy and water performance of their buildings. Clicking on the map will take the user to a page with detailed information about a jurisdiction’s specific policies or programs

Compare policies: The site’s interactive Policy Comparison Tool allows users to compare specific policy elements across multiple jurisdictions. Users can export a policy comparison report as a CSV file or copy the report and insert it into a PowerPoint presentation.

Search for content: The site’s search feature can be used to find documents, news articles, announcements, blog posts and graphics. Users can filter searches by location, topic and content type.

Recent updates: The site includes chronologically sorted news articles, blog posts and announcements.

Building Rating is a joint initiative of the Institute for Market Transformation (IMT) and the Global Buildings Performance Network (GBPN).
