How do I edit basic site information?

Getting your site’s basic information into Measurabl is the first step in ensuring the best possible data coverage and quality. For sites linked with ENERGY STAR, you’ll need to log into ENERGY STAR and share the site Property Information to Measurabl with "Full Access" prior to editing the property details such as building address and year built (see in the section below: "Give Measurabl 'Full Access' to Edit Site Details").

The guidance below shows you how to edit basic information for sites.

How to Edit Basic Site Information:

  1. Navigate to your site.
  2. On the “Site Overview” tab, click on the “Edit” button to the right of the site’s name.

  3. In the pop-out window, you’ll see several tabs at the top, with the active tab highlighted. You’ll start on the “Property Details” tab, where you’ll fill out basic fields such as Name, Address, Year Built, Class, Custom ID.
    1. Potential Custom ID’s: Site’s Fund Name, Your Organization’s Internal Building ID Code, etc.)

  4. Complete the “Spaces” tab to note the type of the various spaces at your site, their floor area, and whether they are leasable or common area.
  5. In the “Control” tab, fill out the Control Type, Percent (%) Owned, Tenancy information, and occupancy readings.
  6. Add your property’s “Lifecycle Events” in the indicated tab (Bought/Sold Date, Initial Construction, Fair Market Value Appraised, Major Renovations).
  7. File and Track your site’s benchmarking ordinances in the indicated tab.


Give Measurabl 'Full Access' to Edit Site Details:

For sites imported into Measurabl from ENERGY STAR, you will have to share the site with "Full Access" to Measurabl prior to editing the basic site information via the Property Information details in ENERGY STAR, if you haven't already. 

Navigate to this guide in order to walk through the sharing process, and ensure your selections match the below:

Once you've correctly shared the site's Property Details with Measurabl in ENERGY STAR, you will see it indicated under the "Edit" tab on the site's profile in Measurabl.

After you edit your site's details, the changes will automatically be reflected in BOTH Measurabl and ENERGY STAR!

*Note that any changes made to Spaces or Occupancy will NOT be pushed back into ENERGY STAR for ENERGY STAR sites. The information above is also only visible to those who have explicitly been given access to your site(s) within Measurabl.

Once you complete your property’s basic details, you are on your way to a completed site profile!

Site Profile Definitions:

  • Control Type & Percent (%) Owned: Whether you OWN or LEASE the property. If you OWN the property, then you will add the percentage of the site that you own. (Note that if you leave this blank, 100% ownership will be assumed).
  • Gross Leasable Area (GLA): the amount of floor space available to be rented to a commercial property; specifically, this is the total floor area designed for tenant occupancy and exclusive use. The Gross Leasable Area is the sum of the floor area of all the spaces you've entered as Leasable Space. 
  • Tenancy Information: Whether the property is single-tenant or multi-tenant.
  • Spaces: Leasable space and common area broke out by each of the individual sections in your building (Offices, Medical Centers, Education, Indoor Parking, etc.). For more detailed information about Spaces, follow this guide. 

To add more property details, such as Certifications and Ratings, and Projects and Audits, please navigate to the corresponding tab on the left of your site’s profile (see the first screenshot).

If you have any questions regarding your property’s basic information or other non-utility data, please feel free to reach out to us at support@measurabl.com.
