We offer a wide range of services including Building Services Audits, HVAC Audits, Energy Audits, Controls Audits, “Nabers” Assessments, Energy Management, BEEC’s, and others.
Energy Audits, based upon the Australian Standards, levels 1,2 or 3 are an excellent place to start in terms of investigating specific opportunities to conserve energy and in turn funds. Performing an energy audit it self is the first step to discovering the opportunities which maybe available to improve your Nabers assessment. A Level 1 Audits can take is a little as a day and cost around $1000 with a “Return on Investment” within 30 days, subject to what is discovered.
Often these audits can find simple programming opportunities which can save considerable funds without the indoor quality being noticeably affected the occupants of the building.

Air Conditioning Mechanics will often perform the same maintenance on the same equipment at the same site where it is easy to access. equipment which is harder to reach or there are unknown functionality issues with the equipment will often be left untouched during routine maintenance as the mechanic souse the path of least resistance. How well is your air conditioning and mechanical, HVAC, services actually performing?
Technical Due Diligence is often completed by asking the incumbent contractor, whom provides the maintenance and
repairs, about their systems and equipment. What do they always say? Given we are all human, then perhaps, a third party audit might be more appropriate for further details and a greater, more objective, view. Talking to the incumbent is a good strategy, but do you think it would be worth while doing a little more investigation by a third party?
