Designed-out or integrated finishes

The requirements for this credit are met when either:

  • No finishes within the scope of the issue have been specified, or
  • Finishes are integrated into the asset and designed in a way that the finish cannot be removed.
    For instance, a self-finished timber floor or exposed soffit which cannot be removed and does not require additional finishes when installed.

This issue recognises avoiding unnecessary waste of materials.
