2 Government agencies have been given excellent energy performance ratings under the new NabersNZ scheme, which measures office building energy use.
The Ministry of Social Development’s Community Link building in Ashburton and the Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority’s Wellington office have been awarded an excellent 4.5 stars, the highest ratings awarded so far under the scheme, which was launched in June.
Ashburton’s 757m² Community Link building is the first in the South Island to get a NabersNZ certified rating.
The Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority’s rating covers its tenanted area – 2 floors at 44 The Terrace, which is owned by Kiwi Income Property Trust.
NabersNZ provides ratings of 1-6 stars and is available for whole buildings, base buildings & tenancies. It’s based on the national Australian built environment rating system, which has rated building energy performance for more than a decade.
