Energy Reports for New Homes and Extensions
Reports for compliance with the 6 Star Energy Rating standard
Six Star Energy Reports
Our six star energy reports service is straightforward, efficient and competitively priced. Upon providing us with your building plans, one of our expert energy rating consultants will conduct a thermal performance assessment on your new house/apartment or renovations using the latest software. If the building doesn’t initially achieve a 6 Star Energy Rating, we can offer a few cost-effective options to bring it up to the required level. We’re ABSA accredited and trained to use the latest 6 Star Energy Rating software.
The Six Star Rating System
The Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) is a star rating system that rates the energy efficiency of a home, based on design. They’re mandatory for all new homes and extensions in Australia. By providing a ‘measuring tape’ to estimate a home’s potential heating and cooling energy use, they help to make Australian homes more comfortable for inhabitants and also helps residents to save on future energy bills through smarter
Six Star Energy Reports for Apartments
We’ve worked together with many builders on their apartment projects in designing the type of wall cladding systems and internal party wall systems that achieve the required compliance rating with a view to minimise costs. Often good design is enough to reduce the amount of energy needed to keep an apartment comfortable with no or little additional construction cost.
Reports for Extensions & Renovations
Looking at the sustainability of your existing home can be frustrating, as it’s not viewed the same as a new home, but must abide by the same rules. We assess hundreds of extensions every year and have the experience both in energy reports and technical building to successfully navigate through the complexities of extensions and offer a fuss-free solution to continue building your extension.
6 Star Compliance Is About Good Design
Meeting 6 Star compliance is not difficult, but it does require smart design, particularly at the planning stages of the project. Many leading builders and developers in Australia are already offering consumers competitively priced homes with 6 and 7 Star energy performance. The benefits include increased comfort, cost savings on energy bills and making homes more resilient to climate change. It’s also beneficial to look at design options that go beyond minimum regulatory requirements.

Only a trained and accredited assessor can certify a home with a 6 Star Energy Rating.
