Hux are the pioneers in real time performance based assessment of buildings. For three years we’ve been building tools to help building managers better understand the spaces they manage to improve them for efficiency and comfort gains.

Across Australia and worldwide, building managers and owners are reaping the benefits of building accreditation to attract better tenants and drive down running costs for themselves and their occupants. Using our complete monitoring solution, or our consultancy service, Hux provides the insights that pay for themselves.


NABERS

NABERS is a national rating system that provides that is recognised globally for being at the forefront of building performance assessment. In 2007 Energy Efficiency in Government Operations (EEGO) Policy sought that all Australian government tenancies above 2000m² would have to be NABERS Energy rating of 4.5 stars or above. This initiative aims to improve the quality of all buildings in leading by example.

This policy alone has fostered wide awareness of the NABERS rating system.

NABERS IE

NABERS IE (Indoor Environment) specifically targets the environmental conditions within buildings. Due to our continuous, distributed monitoring system, Hux can provide the data needs for NABERS IE metrics, lowering the cost of compliance while giving you the tools to confidently improve outcomes. A better NABERS rating means better and heathier tenants and ultimately opportunities to improve property values and rental returns.

Hux is an ideal partner for getting your building NABERS IE accredited, wether we assess with our own monitoring solution, or your BMS data.

BESS

The Built Environment Sustainability Scorecard (BESS) is an assessment tool created by local governments in Victoria. Hux’s own Matthew Sullivan-Kilgour was engaged to assist in the development of this system which assists builders and developers to illustrate that their projects meet best practice sustainability guidelines. A period of monitoring by Hux can provide real data to make decisions for future development, and a way that stakeholders can understand.

Greenstar

“Green Star is Australia's trusted mark of quality for the design, construction and operation of sustainable buildings, fitouts and communities.” Green star is the leading national assessment framework for best practice sustainability.

Achieving compliance has conventionally been an expensive exercise, but a Hux installation facilitates access to upwards of 24% of the total available points.

Well Building Institute

The WELL Building Standard is the leading tool for advancing health and well-being in commercial buildings and communities globally. 23 Million Square meters worldwide are using the Well system to measure building performance. Due to our comprehensive monitoring solution, Hux can assist you in meeting more than 20 of the points available across design, performance, and protocol categories.

WELL works with LEED, Green Star, BREEAM, and other globally-utilized rating systems to drive human and environmental sustainability.

Workplace Safety

Employers have a responsibility to ensure workplaces are comfortable environments for their staff. Often poorly run buildings will be unsafe, especially environments that have high CO₂ saturation.

Any workspace where there’s poor airflow, CO₂ can present a risk, especially when heavy machinery is involved.

There’s a wealth of information on the relationship between productivity and worker comfort, it’s no surprise that a comfortable building will be a productive one. Because Hux understands the occupant comfort and efficiency, improving comfort doesn’t have to result in increased running costs.

Hux has monitored banks, schools, government buildings, open and closed plan offices and warehouses. All are covered by worksafe legislation.
