Huge non-private or blended use improvements

STEPS (Sustainable Tools for Environmental Performance Strategy) for use with Residential structure evaluations
SDS (Sustainable Design Scorecard) for use with non-private structures
There are 9 classes that are surveyed inside the BESS apparatus, which are:
Indoor Environment Quality (IEQ)
Least scores in compulsory classes (Energy, Water, Stormwater, IEQ) alongside a general score of half is required to pass.
