Design for Performance

NABERS Design for Performance enables developers to enter an agreement, whereby they commit to designing, building, and commissioning a new office development or major refurbishment to achieve a specific NABERS Energy rating. This process includes an Independent Design Review (IDR), whereby developers submit their IDR Report (as detailed in the Guide to Design for Performance) to a panel of NABERS Energy experts to validate their target rating. The results from the IDR can be used to obtain a full license to officially promote NABERS target ratings, and will be displayed here on our website in due course.

Following the IDR stage, developers must follow the steps to obtaining a NABERS Energy Rating to fulfil the final step of the Design for Performance agreement.
