Homestar ratings are carried out by Homestar Assessors who negotiate their own Assessor Fees. As with any professional service, you should get several quotes and compare suppliers before engaging a Homestar Assessor to carry out your rating.
The fee calculator covers NZGBC’s Admin and Audit Fee. We’ve developed a calculator to provide a provisional cost. The key variables are:
- Number of dwellings in project
- Number of typologies in project
Admin and Audit Fees include:
- Fixed admin fee - $0 for NZGBC members; $0 for projects with an Architectural Designers New Zealand (ADNZ) member involved; $295 for non-members
- Admin fee per dwelling (applies from second dwelling in project only) - $100 for NZGBC members; $150 for non-members
- Fee per typology - $695
Homestar Assessor working on your project will use this to register your project, and NZGBC will provide a confirmed cost once details are finalised.
There is an additional fee of $300 for auditing energy models. Please indicate when registering the project if you intend to submit an energy model. Each project may submit 2 Technical Questions for free, any after which will incur a fee of $200 each. If any additional auditing is required there may be further fees. For more information, please email the Homestar team.
