Since 2001 our qualified Energy Rating Assessors and Consultants in Melbourne Australia, have independently assessed the thermal energy performance in building designs for architects, builders and developers, and homeowners across the country.
Founder, Wayne Floyd, noticed the growing discussion of both the Australian government and the general public around climate change, energy consumption and environmental sustainability. He saw the need to actively reduce humans’ carbon footprint and greenhouse gas emissions.
Architects, builders and developers wanting innovative and environmentally friendly and sustainable buildings sought Floyd Energy® as one of the few 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.
Legislation saw an influx of building energy rating assessors
In 2003, all Australian state and territory governments commenced staged roll-outs of mandatory energy efficiency standards into the Building Code of Australia (BCA). Floyd Energy® was already ahead of the energy rating industry.
Floyd Energy® grew its service offering beyond energy ratings and 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 providing 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.
