We offer a number of services to our clients in relation to House Energy Rating and Sustainability.

 

Residential Energy Assessments & Ratings

 

Compliance & Certification of New Dwellings

All States and Territories in Australia require minimum energy efficiency targets to be met in order to build a new home in Australia.  In most states, excluding NSW, this is set by the Building Code of Australia (BCA) and is a Star rating.  In NSW, this is determined by BASIX.   We offer a full BASIX service incorporating all components including thermal performance, water and energy. Our assessors are qualified to operate in all states holding accreditation where required.  They can simply advise you of your minimum requirements or get involved early in the design phase and help you to reduce your impact on the environment and energy costs by advising you on how to build a house with a rating up top 10 stars!
