About Surfcoast Thermal Performance Energy Rating

Surfcoast TPER is a sustainable building consultancy solely devoted to energy efficiency compliance. We specialise in Thermal Performance (Energy Rating) Assessment and Certification.

We take the broader view that energy efficiency is not only about compliance, it is to do with sustainable living. We understand how homes perform in the environment and how people live and work in their homes. Our aim is to maximise a home’s thermal comfort and liveability, with the added bonus of reducing ever-escalating energy bills. An energy efficient home will also increase its resale value.

The principal of Surfcoast TPER, Terry Robinson, is accredited with NatHERS and ABSA to Assess and Certify new homes (and existing homes undergoing an extension/alterations/addition) compliance with the energy efficiency requirements of the National Construction Code (NCC) of Australia and the Building Code of Australia 2010 (BCA 2010).

Terry Robinson (B. Environmental Design-UTAS, B. Construction Management-Deakin University, Certificate IV in NatHERS Assessment) has over 30 years experience in building design, project and construction management, and energy auditing. For many years Terry Robinson was a Registered Building Practitioner, specialising in prestige residential construction.

Surfcoast TPER is based in Ocean Grove on the Victorian Surf Coast.
