BASIX is an initiative by the NSW Government that requires all new and significantly altered dwellings to be designed and built to achieve a reduction in water consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.
Put simply, new dwellings have to use less water and be more energy efficient.
A BASIX certificate is required to be lodged with most applications for residential building works. The certificate will specify aspects such as levels of wall insulation and window shading requirements.
A thermal comfort rating certificate (sometimes referred to as NATHERS, or ACCURATE or BERS Pro rating) accompanies the BASIX certificate and verifies the energy consumption of the dwelling.
