Floyd Energy® (Floyd Group Pty Ltd) is an energy rating business with assessors based in Melbourne & Sydney.
Since 2001, our assessors and consultants have independently assessed thermal energy performance in building designs for architects, builders and developers, and homeowners across Australia.
Founder, Wayne Floyd, observed the growing discussion of both the Australian government and the general public around climate change, energy consumption and environmental sustainability, and the need to reduce humans’ carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions.
With his 30 years’ experience in the building materials sector, specialising in windows and glass, two of the key components in obtaining a thermally efficient building, Wayne was already advising builders, architects and developers on how to alter building design to achieve thermal comfort and energy savings.
Architects, builders and developers wanting innovative and environmentally friendly and sustainable buildings sought Wayne and Floyd Energy® as one of the few building energy rating assessor businesses in Australia who could advise how to design and plan buildings to be energy efficient and sustainable, and deliver thermal comfort for occupiers.
In 2003, all Australian state and territory governments commenced staged roll-outs of mandatory energy efficiency standards into the Building Code of Australia (BCA). With this, an influx of energy rating businesses soon followed.
But Floyd Energy® was already ahead of the energy rating industry.
Wayne and his growing team were using their building knowledge to ask the pertinent and often difficult questions to deliver best outcomes for clients.
Floyd Energy® grew its service offering beyond energy ratings
Consultancy services soon followed, including work with Australian government departments, regulatory authorities, building materials suppliers, industry associations and volume builders.
Floyd Energy® has built a reputation of giving clients and industry bodies a clearer understanding of the impact of a quality building energy rating process on their respective businesses.
All staff are qualified energy rating assessors (NatHERS, BASIX, BESS, Section J, JV3, Green Star) and have extensive working backgrounds in building industries. This means your design will be assessed by people who know more than a software program’s outputted data.
We look beyond only giving you an energy rating report for a building permit. We care about your occupants’ savings and comfort, whether that be a young family in a new home, a growing family in an extension, office workers in a high-rise building, older people in a retirement village or patients in a care facility.
With Floyd Energy® you will receive independent advice. With no conflicts of interest. We will say “no” to a design and plan in the interest of best practice and the ultimate longevity of the building and occupiers.
