COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS CERTIFICATION
NATIONAL CONSTRUCTION CODE SECTION J ENERGY ASSESSMENTS
We can ensure your new building design complies with the National Construction Code Section J energy efficiency requirements.
The purpose of the section J report is to ensure that all new and renovated commercial and industrial buildings help with the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and also to improve their comfort and a reduction in their energy usage and operating costs.
We are trained to provide professional reports in the form of a Deemed-To-Satisfy elemental analysis and when required/requested a more comprehensive JV3 computer simulation analysis which can better define a more economical combination of insulation and glazing.
RESIDENTIAL BUILDINGS CERTIFICATION
The Building Sustainability Index – BASIX is a tool to ensure all residential buildings in NSW achieve a minimum standard or water, thermal comfort and energy efficiency. A BASIX certificate is required when building approvals are submitted at the DA stage. A BASIX Compliance Certificate is also mandatory for all Alterations and Additions where the renovation work is valued at $50 000 or more – or involves a pool/spa installation with a total volume greater than 40,000 litres.
The Partners Energy team are fully informed of the current regulations and very experienced in the process having completed over 4,300 BASIX Certificates. We take pride in working with clients to ensure they achieve the best, cost-effective solutions.
