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:
- Number of dwellings in project
- Number of typologies in project
- Fixed admin fee - $295
- Admin fee per dwelling - $150 for members; $195 for non members
- Fee per typology - $500
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.
- 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).
