How does the process work?

Feasibility assessments will be carried out by NABERSNZ Interns. These Interns have successfully completed NABERSNZ Assessor training and be supervised by the NZGBC.

Once a client has successfully been accepted for this programme, the process is:

  • The intern and client have an initial meeting to go through what information is needed and agree a timetable for the work.
  • Another meeting is held to consider the data and go through a feasibility checklist.
  • A report is prepared and delivered to the client with an assessment on their building. This report will categorise the property by how much work is needed to progress to a rating.
Status explanation



The client is provided with a link to list of assessors to go start the official rating process.
A date is set for completion of a NABERSNZ rating.
