Nabers & BEEC

Benchmark your sustainability performance

NABERS RATINGS & BEEC CERTIFICATES

The National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) tool, has been leading the way for sustainability in Australia’s property industry for over 20 years now. At HFM, we have been implementing these star scale ratings from the beginning and as per territory government requirements.

Building efficiency requires continual assessment and strategies for improvement.

NABERS Ratings for Different Spaces

NABERS for offices can be used to rate the whole building, base building or tenancy…

The NABERS for Apartment Buildings tool represents an advantage for the residential sector…

NABERS for shopping centres rates the energy and water consumption that is management by a shopping centre owner…

NABERS ratings for Hotels measure the environmental efficiency for various hotels across Australia…

Data Centres are also able to benchmark their sustainability performance with a NABERS rating…

WHAT IS A NABERS RATING?

The National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) develops owner’s knowledge of their building performance and encourages them to carry out improvements to reduce environmental impact.

This tool has been leading the way for sustainability in Australia’s property industry for over 20 years, and it’s now available to other sectors. At HFM, we have been implementing these ratings from the beginning

What are the benefits?

NN

Comply

NABERS ratings & BEEC assessments are mandatory for certain buildings.

LL

Improve

The NABERS system is working; statistics show that, on average, owners are reducing building energy consumption by 5% and emissions by 6% between their first and second assessments and further reductions achieved with ongoing assessments.

Save

Costs involved in running a building, an apartment complex, a shopping centre,a hotel or a data centre are significantly reduced throughout the actions perform as a result of the continous assessment via a NABERS rating.

Attract

Tenants and buyers respond to strong NABERS performance; because they know that efficient building’s performance means lower variable outgoings for tenants and lower vacancy rates for owners.

WHAT IS A BEEC CERTIFICATE?

A Building Energy Efficiency Certificate or BEEC is a compulsory certificate before advertising or offering for sublease, lease or sell any disclosure affected commercial area above 1000 square meters.

Only CBD accredited assessors are authorised to apply for a BEEC on behalf of owners or lessors.

BEECS are valid up to 12 months and include:

Tenancy Lighting Assessment

A tenancy lighting assessment (TLA) for the relevant disclosure affected areas of the building. The expiry date for a TLA has recently been extended. Building owners will only be required to undertake these assessments every five years instead of annually

NABERS Rating

National Australian Built Environment Rating System (NABERS) star rating. This rating is valid for a period of 12 months.

How to get a BEEC?

The first step to get a Building Energy Efficiency Certificate (BEEC) is to verify if there is an existing or current BEEC for the building,

Then appoint a Commercial Building Disclosure (CBD) accredited assessor for a consultation, cost agreement and a plan to undertake the relevant assessments prior to submitting your BEEC application, as only an accredited assessor can apply for a BEEC, this is a must.
