NatHERS Energy Rating

NatHERS Building Thermal Performance Assessment

GreenForm offers a straight forward and competitively priced NatHERS energy rating service. We offer compliance services for minimum 6 star standard, or can consult on true high performance 10 star dwelling efficiency. Upon receival of the building plans, one of our expert thermal performance assessors will conduct an assessment using the latest thermal software to help you achieve the best results for your project.
Wollongong and NSW locations must comply with the thermal loads nominated by BASIX, whereas Geelong and VIC must comply with the minimum DTS or NatHERS 6 Star standard. We can advise which standard is applicable and most appropriate for your individual project.

WHEN NatHERS IS APPLICABLE:
NatHERS applies only to residential projects or residential parts of mixed use buildings. For Class 1 dwellings (eg. Houses, townhouses) it is an optional means of compliance in NSW, however in all other states/territories and for Class 2 dwellings (units, apartments), it is mandatory Australia wide.
NatHERS is the most common method for energy efficiency compliance used for Class 1 dwellings. It can be combined with BASIX for NSW projects, or for all other states and territories can be used in place of the BCA DTS Elemental Provisions method.

BASIX for NSW
NSW: We recommend using NatHERS for the thermal section of BASIX to reduce the construction costs of complying with BASIX alone & increase building design flexibility.
