There are many audits that provide information on energy use. We aim to use our experience to provide a significant return on the investment made in carrying out an audit by identifying where energy is wasted or could be better used to drive production or productivity. We identify the reason for anomalies by taking a forensic approach to building energy losses. Viridis is unique in supporting the application of complementary techniques (e.g. thermal imaging, air permeability testing and IEQ monitoring) in our energy audits.
If an organisation is looking to further improve its performance and improve its outputs, a Sustainability Audit provides a platform to accelerate that change.
Viridis provides an audit service extending beyond the standard ‘engineering’ approach of energy auditing to look at a much wider range of issues affecting sustainability, including water, materials, equity, plus occupant health, wellbeing, operation and behaviour.
Our audit approach combines compliant Australian Standard energy audits with post-occupancy evaluation so that owners and operators can identify areas for cost-effective improvements that actually perform. Viridis has peer-reviewed several energy audits to assist clients in making better investment decisions and to pragmatically implement upgrade measures.
Viridis has undertaken audits on buildings such as small residential, education facilities and commercial buildings across Australia, including The National Library of Australia, Castletown Shopping Centre and Carey Gardens Aged Care facility.
