Go Design Solutions drafting design services in Penshurst explain BASIX
Introduced by the NSW Government, BASIX is the Building Sustainability Index. This has been put in place to ensure homes are designed to use less potable water and be responsible for fewer greenhouse gas emissions, by setting energy and water reduction targets for houses and units.
BASIX is one of the most robust sustainable planning measures in Australia, delivering equitable and effective water and greenhouse gas reductions across NSW. BASIX uses information such as site location, house size, type of building materials and fittings for hot water, cooling and heating.
As an on-line program, BAXIX assesses the design of a dwelling, comparing it against energy and water reduction targets. The final design must meet these targets before a BASIX Certificate can be given.
Our residential drafting design experts explain that every development application for a new home and for renovations over $50k must be submitted to Council with a BASIX Certificate.
