Abstract

In this presentation Maggie Glowacki will describe how the Green Shores for Homes (GSH) rating system was tested using pilot sites. Two sites were identified in Lake Washington and two sites were identified in the Salish Sea and based on recent improvements at these sites the GSH rating system was used to determine the Green Shores credit scores at each site. Then each site was scored by a trained verifier to determine how well both the GSH rating system and verifier training performed. Adjustments were made to the GSH rating system and the verifier training based on the results of the assessment of the pilot projects.
