Following National Construction Code (NCC) 2022 updates relating to energy efficiency, the NSW Government is introducing important equivalent changes that apply from 1 October 2023 under the state's ramped up Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) scheme to improve energy efficiency.
Among the strongest sustainable planning measures to be adopted in Australia, the new BASIX requirements will apply to all new residential projects as well as renovations and extensions valued at more than $50,000.
An essential session for all architects working on residential projects in NSW, enrollees will hear directly from Planning NSW's Mary O'Neill about the revised BASIX requirements and assessment tool, and learn design strategies for achieving the new performance standards through case studies presented by ESD expert Tracey Cools.
On completion of this course participants should be able to:
