Certification fees

Homestar Pricing Calculator March 2016

Homestar ratings are carried out by Homestar Assessors who negotiate their own 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 Homestar certification fee calculator covers NZGBC’s administration and audit costs. We’ve developed a calculator to provide a provisional cost. The key variables are:

  • new build OR existing dwelling
  • number of dwellings in project
  • number of typologies in project

The Homestar Assessor working on your project will use this to register your project, and NZGBC will provide a confirmed cost once details are finalised.

Additional fees
  • Energy Modelling auditing: $300 per project.
  • Innovation credit auditing: $100 per credit.
  • Project Inquiries (PIs): $100 per clarification. Each project receives 2 free Project Inquiries (PIs).
  • Credit Interpretation Requests (CIRs): $200 per clarification. Each project receives 2 free Credit Interpretation Requests (CIRs).

If you need more information, please contact NZGBC.
