The constructionStatus field allows you to indicate whether a property is a design project or an existing building. The upgraded Portfolio Manager has additional functionality that allows for design scenarios before construction. If you are providing energy use data for an existing building please use the indicator for an existing building. The definitions are as follows:
•Existing: My property is built, occupied and/or being used. I will be using Portfolio Manager to track energy/water consumption and, perhaps, pursue recognition.
•Design Project: My property is in the conceptual design phase (pre-construction); I will be using Portfolio Manager to evaluate the energy efficiency of the design project.
