Architects/Drafters

Assisting Architects and Drafters to design energy efficient homes often involves the consideration of unique design objectives. We welcome all residential design projects, from the traditional, through to the completely unconventional…

Working with Create a Sustainable Home as an architect or drafter, will ensure that your design meets or exceeds compliance requirements. However, you will also benefit from the little extras we provide to exceed your clients’ expectations, making YOUR service look even better.

We offer various degrees of service for Architects and Drafters, including:

Compliance

Create a Sustainable Home’s professional, fast and cost effective Compliance service will save you time and money, attaining energy compliance.

As well as an official House Energy Rating Report, a complimentary ‘Instruction Manual’ is provided to the end client. The manual outlines practices and products to help them make the most of their new home’s energy efficiency and thermal comfort capabilities. This is an extremely useful resource which will enhance the resale value of the client’s home in the future.

Simulations of design, construction and material alternatives can also be provided, to find the most cost effective, certifiable solution.

Compliance PLUS

Are you looking (perhaps on behalf of a single client) to design a house with increased thermal performance and energy efficiency, rating above 6 stars?

If so, our Compliance PLUS service is the ideal option. Compliance PLUS includes:

  1. Thermal performance simulations conducted throughout the design process, to ensure that the house’s thermal performance will align with your client’s expectations. (And yes… it IS possible to eradicate the need for heating and cooling completely. In fact, this can reduce a client’s energy bill by up to 38% from the get-go).
  2. The production of a House Energy Rating Report, when the design reaches the desired level of thermal performance. The design is then certified for energy compliance.
  3. The provision of an Instruction Manual for the end client, outlining practices and products to help them make the most of their new home’s energy efficiency and thermal comfort capabilities. This is an extremely useful resource which will enhance the resale value of the client’s home in the future.

Compliance PLUS Sustainability

This service is ideal for clients looking to achieve maximum energy efficiency and sustainability through a more holistic approach to the design of their new home or renovation.

Compliance PLUS Sustainability includes:

  1. Pre-design consultancy for the end client (this proactive approach can result in the minimisation of the home’s energy bills by up to 70%).
  2. Advice on a full spectrum of building materials, construction methods, products and features to complement your client’s goals and budget.
  3. Thermal performance simulations, conducted throughout the design process, to ensure that the house’s thermal performance will align with your client’s expectations.
  4. Once the design reaches the desired level of thermal performance, a House Energy Rating Report is certified for energy compliance.
  5. Finally, a more comprehensive Instruction Manual is provided to the end client outlining practices and products to help them make the most of their new home’s energy efficiency and thermal comfort capabilities.
