A PQP is an individual in the development team who facilitates
the Pearl Rating Process. The PQP's role includes:
Understand and provide guidance on the technical requirements of
the relevant Pearl Rating System.
Understand and facilitate the certification process.
Provide quality assurance to document submissions by the
relevant project team members at each stage.
The UPC will publish a list of qualified PQPs on its website so
that the industry may find suitable professionals.
Pass the PQP exam.
Learn or refresh sustainability knowledge. Achieve formal
recognition among peers and in the industry. The knowledge and
experience that a PQP provides will be highly sought after since a
PQP will be required for all Pearl projects.
From 1 June 2011, all PCRS and PBRS submittals must be done by a
certified PQP in the applicable rating system.
There is no such thing as an Estidama or Pearl Qualified
Contractor; however you should ensure that your design engineer,
architect or contractor has at least one PVRS Professional to
support your project from design to construction end.
