How much does certification cost?
An initial project registration fee is paid. Following registration, the design team will have access to all the calculators and initial IGBC support including design team charrette if needed to carry out a pre-assessment of the proposed development. Registration fees are non-refundable. The developer may then decide to proceed to certification.
Please note that fees are subject to change.
Registration fees (from 10th February 2023 – may be subject to revision thereafter – Prices exclude VAT)
|5 – 20 homes||€ 500.00|
|21 – 100 homes||€ 750.00|
|101+ homes||€ 1000.00|
Certification fees (from 10th February 2023 – may be subject to revision thereafter – Prices exclude VAT.)
These are calculated per home as follows:
5 – 100 @ €55/home
101 – 250 @ €45/home
251 – 500 @ €35/home
500+ @ €25/home
Example A – A development of 63 homes is calculated as follows : (63 x €55) = € 3,465.00
Example B – A development of 563 homes is calculated as follows : (100 x €55 + 150 x €45 + 250 x €35 + 63 x €25) = € 22,575.00
In all cases the registration fee must have been paid.
*Fees will not be refunded in the event a project team withholds a HPI certification application and/or terminates the registration for a project.
*Fees will be assessed and updated if warranted at the start of January every year.
*Projects seeking to target indicator EC 7.0 Innovation will be charged an additional €1000 (excl VAT) for each innovation proposal assessed.
