APR Building Services

$199.00 is based on (FirstRate5):
(DTS software)

$199.00 Inc Gst (per Assessment) is based on a proposed single storey dwelling (including the existing) using standard basic designs and/or construction methods under 250 sqm, non standard architectural designs and/or constructions methods will be priced accordingly.

If the proposed dwelling, including the existing, can achieve 6 Stars on its own then only one assessment will be required. But this is rarely achievable unless you are fully retrofitting the existing part of the house/dwelling.

If the existing/proposed house/dwelling can't achieve the minimum 6 Stars required on its own, then the Victorian Building Authority's Practice Note: 2018-55 will be used as a Performance Solution. This is where two separate assessments will be required.

One assessment is based on the existing house/dwelling as it stands now and other assessment is based on the proposed house/dwelling including the existing.
($398.00 Inc GST: 2 x Single storey dwelling - up to 250 sqm).

You will also need to add $99.00 Inc Gst for our Regulation 233 Worksheet which works out the areas/volumes of the project.

* All projects are issued a price via email once we have received the Working Drawings.

** Artificial Lighting Reports are not part of an energy rater's reporting process, if required then a separate price will be issued.

*** Each assessment requires an individual Certificate which is submitted to the RBS/Council with your stamped Working Drawings. Cost details as per our Price Guide Web page.
