What’s new and improved in IES TaP?

By Glenn Miles on Wednesday 22 June 2016

The latest version of IES TaP has all the functionality and features you’re used to, with some new features and improvements designed to improve your user experience and build upon the power and flexibility of IES TaP for delivering Green Building Ratings Online. Take a look at the highlights!

BREEAM New Construction
Version 4.1 of BREEAM New Construction is now available in IES TaP.

Automatic role assignment
With the release of BREEAM 2014 4.1 comes a new feature to make it even easier to assign responsibility to the project team. When your project is created, responsibility is automatically allocated to the role which would typically provide the evidence. So when you know which project member will be carrying out that role on the project, simply add them into the role and they will automatically be assigned all the corresponding evidence.

Commenting updates
A number of reports in the Report Centre now have the option to include comments, with a number of options on which comments to display. You can now also add comments under a ‘category’ – this is useful if you want to group comments under a meeting for example “AP Meeting 1” and create a report specifically for that meeting.

New report output filters
The Criteria Summary Report now has a number of settings to make this a really flexible and powerful report. These options give the ability to change the sorting, select which columns and data values you want to include, show responsibility and include the evidence requirements. Want to produce a traffic light report to show outstanding credits and evidence along with responsibility? This is your place.

Project Scenarios
Project scenarios provides tools to create unlimited scenarios for your project. This could be creating multiple pre-assessments at a fixed point in time, to create a gap analysis on how to achieve a higher rating, or to simulate what the impact on changes to the project design. Scenarios come with all the reporting options as a normal project.

Export to Excel
A number of reports in the Report Centre now have the option to export as Excel along with the usual print options.
