Apply today to find out and see how we can help your microgeneration product gain acceptance in the marketplace.

 

At the BBA, our construction experts work with product manufacturers in certifying products created aimed at the building of high performance, energy efficient buildings, that minimise their environmental impact.

We certify products in the area of building performance including: air movement, thermal performance, control of moisture, ambient energy, acoustics, light, climate and biology, addressing energy efficiency and building sustainability, but also a building's internal environment conditions that affect the comfort and performance levels of its occupants, which is why in conjunction with our BBA Agrément Certificate, we also offer certification in the area of Microgeneration.
