Gradwell Consulting has extensive experience in providing BASIX Certificates and thermal performance modelling for houses, townhouses and apartments across NSW. BASIX, the Building Sustainability Index, is designed to ensure that homes in NSW use less water and are more energy efficient.
A BASIX Certificate is required for new homes, multi unit buildings and most alterations and additions. The certificate is lodged as part of a development application.
BASIX is best seen as an opportunity to improve the long term comfort and reduce the ongoing cost of a dwelling. The design stage is when such improvements can be made for minimum effort. A thorough analysis of the thermal performance of the building is essential.
Remember that the commitments you make in the BASIX Certificate will be checked by the principal certifying authority before they issue an occupation certificate.
Engaging the services of an accredited sustainability assessor is recommended and that’s where we come in. Gradwell Consulting are experts at energy rating and know how to get the best results for your BASIX Certificate.
Gradwell Consulting also provide Section J energy efficiency reports for commercial buildings.
