What do the dials and colors mean?

Green Badger’s dashboard is set up to track two main things: where your project is in construction, and how well it’s performing across its LEED goals. Where it is in construction is shown in this green progress bar. That’s based on whatever you’ve entered for your start & end dates, and is just a percentage of that based on schedule.

Beneath, you have your LEED credit status. Progress is tracked color-coded. If it’s red, the team has not made any entries contributing to that credit. If it’s yellow, you’re making progress but haven’t hit a threshold for any points. Dark green means you’re currently earning one point. Bright green is two points, and bright blue is three points. For the inspection-based credits of erosion control & indoor air quality where there’s not a certain LEED threshold, those just stay grey and show a count of how many inspections have been created.

The dials represent progress towards earning a LEED credit. The value displayed is specific to each credit/option based on what the specific LEED threshold is. For example, 79% is Construction Waste means that the project is currently diverted 79% of its waste. If 17 is displayed in EPD Option 1, the project currently has 17 products with environmental product declarations. Low Emitting represents the number of compliant product categories earned, and Erosion Control and IAQ Inspections shows the total number of inspections that have been completed.

The colors change as progress towards meeting LEED thresholds is made. If no entries have been made, the dials will be red. Once entries have begun, the dial will turn yellow, indicating progress is being made:

  • Dark Green indicates 1 LEED point is being earned, Bright Green is 2 points, and Bright Blue is 3 points (Exemplary Performance).
  • Grey dials are displayed for credits where there is not a right or wrong LEED threshold. There is not a required number of IAQ or ESC reports that need to be completed, so those dials remain grey.
