Legacy tools

Discontinued versions of Green Star

Legacy rating tools are Green Star rating tools that have been superseded by the release of new rating tools.

Registration for legacy tools closed in December 2015. We encourage all projects to use the latest rating tools available and take advantage of improved services and other benefits. To transition a project, get in touch with our Market Engagement team.

If you still have a project registered with a legacy rating tool, it will be available to view in your project's records in Green Star Project Manager.

Projects which have been previously registered or have been certified for a Design rating using a legacy rating tool are able to register for an As Built rating, provided that the eligibility criteria is still met.

The legacy Green Star rating tools:

  • Green Star – Office Design v2
  • Green Star – Office As Built v2
  • Green Star – Office v3
  • Green Star – Office Interiors v1.1
  • Green Star – Education v1 
  • Green Star – Healthcare v1 
  • Green Star – Industrial v1 
  • Green Star – Multi Unit Residential v1
  • Green Star – Public Building v1
  • Green Star – Retail Centre v1

Legacy Design rating expiry

We introduced time limits on Green Star – Design ratings from 1 January 2013. This means that legacy Green Star – Design ratings awarded to projects registered on or after 1 January 2013 expire 24 months after the building’s practical completion.


Credit or credit criterion substitution for legacy rating tools

Projects registered under legacy building rating tools can take advantage of the more flexible and easy-to-use credits in current Green Star rating tools by substituting credits. Project teams may elect to substitute relevant credits where it is advantageous to a project’s Green Star submission.

The following documents detail the process required for substituting credits from Green Star – Design & As Built v1 into legacy building rating tool projects:

The following documents detail the process required for substituting credits from Green Star – Interiors v1.1 into projects registered under previous versions of the rating tool.
