Why use us to rate your home?

We can manage all aspects of assessing and documenting your home to meet the requirements of Council environmental regulation. This professional advice can save you time and money by eliminating any costly changes or delays caused by non-compliant plans.

We use sophisticated computer programs to analyse your building plans and can offer practical advice on cost-effective ways to improve the performance of your home.

We are professionals who can help you reap the rewards of an environmentally friendly home. A sustainable home can:

• stay naturally warm in winter and cool in summer, reducing expensive air conditioning
• reduce greenhouse gas emissions that result from burning coal or gas to generate energy
• conserve precious water resources
• minimise waste and reduce our impact on natural ecosystems
• reduce your energy and water bills.

Recognising these benefits, governments across Australia have introduced sustainability requirements that you will need to meet when building a new home.


Do I need a certificate?

Throughout Australia excluding NSW

Building regulations in all States and Territories set minimum standards for energy efficiency in new houses. There are similar regulations for apartments (except in the Northern Territory). A house energy rating is one way to satisfy these regulations.

In NSW you’ll need a BASIX® certificate for:


• Any new dwelling.
• For alterations and additions work on existing dwellings where the estimated construction cost of the work is more than $50,000 and where development approval is required.
• For a swimming pool of 40,000 liters capacity or more.


When do I need a certificate?

You’re best to pursue the certificate after your plans have been drawn. You’ll need your BASIX® certificate when you’re submitting your plans to council with the development application.
