Please join us in congratulating Sustainability Consultant, Mollie Cross, who has just qualified as a NABERS Licensed Assessor.
Although relatively new to the UK, the NABERS rating system was launched in 1999 in Australia and is considered to be a world leading environmental rating tool for commercial office buildings. It has recently been adapted for the UK and is being administered by the BRE.
The energy efficiency rating of office buildings across the UK can now be carried out with this simple, reliable system which awards between one and six stars. This is intended to help owners understand their asset’s performance when compared to other similar buildings and providing a benchmark for progress.
There are two separate rating assessments on offer… Design for Performance and Energy for Offices
Design for Performance is the process whereby a developer or owner commits to design, build and commission a new office development or major refurbishment to achieve a specific NABERS Energy rating.
NABERS Energy measures the efficiency of an office building and rates its performance. The energy rating works by comparing the energy consumption of a building against a set of benchmarks that have been developed using actual data.
If you’d like more information on the NABERS Assessments, please contact us directly – we’d be only too happy to chat through your options.
