Why do you need an assessment?
The assessment will indicate where a building solution is proposed to comply with the deemed to satisfy provisions. It is the mandatory component of the BCA and describes the level of performance which must be met by the building materials, components, design factors and construction methods in order for a building to meet the minimum energy efficiency standards.
Commercial projects new and extensions to existing buildings such as Offices, Retail, Hotels, Schools are also required to meet the minimum standards. These will be assessed using the Deemed to Satisfy provisions of the BCA Volume 1 Section J.
