Frequently Asked Questions

What is BTI?

The Building Trustworthy Indicator (BTI) is a market-led digital product that differentiates between trustworthy and non-trustworthy built assets.

What does BTI measure?

BTI measures the trustworthiness of buildings by capturing data regarding the materials, processes, and the historical track-record of participants involved in its design and construction.

What is the difference between a ‘Trustworthy As Designed’ and a ‘Trustworthy As Built’ indicator?

A ‘Trustworthy As Designed’ indicator provides a measure of trustworthiness for the design of a building. At this stage construction of the building has not yet commenced.
In comparison, a ‘Trustworthy As Built’ indicator measures the trustworthiness of the final built asset once it is ready for occupation.

At what stage of the development cycle is an indicator issued?

A ‘Trustworthy As Designed’ indicator is granted once a construction certificate has been issued by your local regulatory body.
A ‘Trustworthy As Built’ indicator is granted once an occupation certificate has been issued by your local regulatory body.
