Have your say on NABERS tools
Released 2 September 2011



Following changes to the NABERS rating scale last month, the Property Council is calling for feedback in regard to the real world operation of the tool. 

The Property Council has commissioned Jonathan Dalton of Viridis E3 to conduct a public review in order to foster an open discussion about NABERS.

The review seeks feedback across all aspects of the tools, including but not limited to:
  • Purpose and implementation;
  • Rating (calculation, validity);
  • Assessment process;
  • Metrics and data collected for assessment;
  • Cost of undertaking ratings;
  • Governance of the rating tools (e.g. consultation, independence, technical updating);
  • Assessors (technical knowledge, training); and
  • Future of the rating tools (expansion of the scale, future uses of ratings)
Feedback will be collected for all NABERS tools across all building types and environmental categories.

The review is designed to develop recommendations for further lifting the relevance and efficiency of NABERS.

Please send your submissions to NABERS@propertyoz.com.au by Friday, 11 November 2011.

For more information about the review, please contact Jane Macnamara by email or on (02) 9033 1983.
