Are you using the correct energy efficiency requirements?

May 18, 2020

As of 1 May the NCC 2019 energy efficiency changes to section J of volume one and part 3.12 of volume two are now mandatory. The transition period of twelve months has now ended.

To get an understanding of the changes, HIA have webinars available about the energy efficiency changes to both volumes. It is important that all new projects comply with the new requirements when lodging for a building permit.

For houses and apartments the most important change is the introduction of the need to satisfy heating and cooling loads on top of the 6 star energy rating and clarified building sealing provisions. An information sheet providing more detail on the volume one changes is available here.

For further information on the changes, please contact HIA Building Services on 1300 650 620.
