Options for complying with energy efficiency requirements
The options to meet the energy efficiency performance requirement of a house as set out in the Building Code of Australia (BCA) Volume Two, can be achieved through Deemed-to-Satisfy provisions or an alternative solution.
When submitting a building permit application to the Shire for new buildings or major additions to a building, (other than most Class 10), the application will need to meet the required energy efficiency/sustainability requirements.
Alternatively, certification from a Registered First Rate or NatHers energy efficiency assessor for the proposed design may be submitted.
Find a registered assessor on the Australian Building Sustainability Association website.
