The HPI is based on five verifiable categories: Environment, Economic, Health and Well being, Quality Assurance and Sustainable Location. The IGBC are currently building a pool of highly skilled HPI professionals by delivering the Home Performance Index Assessor training.

Residential development will be the key growth area in the construction industry with 500,000 houses to be built over the next 22 years. There will be considerable government investment, with quality and sustainability as one of the key requirements. A number of large PPP residential projects will be tendered over the coming year and developers who are looking to get an edge on their competitors should consider the Home Performance Index as the clearest way of meeting quality requirements.

Being a Certified HPI Assessor allows you to advise clients and submit assessments for HPI, Ireland’s first national quality and sustainability assessment system for new housing.
