6 Star Energy Rating Report
A 6 Star Energy Rating Report is a measurement of the heating and cooling loads of a dwelling to determine how much energy is required per year to keep the occupants comfortable.
Basix identifies architectural elements such as location, building size, orientation, and construction type, landscaping, and fixtures that will affect the probable level of thermal comfort and water and energy use per home.
7 Star Energy Rating Report
It is common to have an energy rating report completed for your new dwelling or extension once the working drawings are complete. While this ensures that all details are finalised, it will mean that any problems in the energy rating will be rectified only by 'adding on' extras
Sustainable Design Assessment (SDA)
During the planning stage, councils will generally ask for a report outlining key Environmental Sustainable Design (ESD) measures that will be implemented during the construction stage.
Sustainable Management Plan
Sustainable Management Plans are often called up for apartment complexes and significant missed use developments. It is essential to engage in a professional ESD consultant early as council apartment guidelines stipulate maximum cooling loads.
Waste Management Plan
Waste Management Plan is requested by the council in order to determine how much waste and recycling will be generated by each occupant, as well as the collection and removal processes.
Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) Report
A Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) report calculates a development's ability to treat rainwater collected from the other hard surfaces introduced. A site that usually features a large percentage of lawn and vegetation nourished by rainwater will now have a significant amount of hard surface area collecting the rainwater and pushing it through the stormwater drainage system.
Green Travel Plan
A Green Travel Plan (GTP) sets out initiatives designed to encourage more sustainable travel methods. Our major cities have fast become crowded with single occupancy car trips causing congestion and pollution.
Section J Report
A Section J report, also known as an NCC Part J assessment, is required for non-residential building projects. It references the requirements from the NCC.Vol1 Part J energy efficiency and it is a requirement for all class 2-9 buildings
JV3 can be used as an alternative solution when a Section J report is required. This applies when a building's complex design does not meet the Deemed to Satisfy (DtS) requirements under the National Construction Code (NCC).
Our daylight and sunlight assessment team provide specialist planning reports and expert advice on daylight, sunlight and overshadowing factors to maximise your development value.
Sustainable Design Scorecard (SDS)
Buildings can be designed to various efficiency and amenity standards. The Building Code of Australia (BCA) outlines minimum necessary standards to meet relevant health, safety, amenity and energy efficiency objectives.
