6 Star Energy Rating Report

Best Prices. Quick Turnaround.

Thermal assessments are required as part of the regulatory process. In VIC they are required as part of the Construction Certificate or building permit application process.

It is recommended that a Thermal Performance Assessment be obtained before finalising the proposed dwelling's plan, as the assessment may show that the plans require modifications.

We will provide a assessment summary of suggested Insulation and Glazing requirements for you alteration/extension, new home or multi-unit development to conform to current industry standards.
