Accredited Assessor means a person accredited by an Assessor Accrediting Organisation (AAO) to conduct Simulations for the Thermal Comfort Index of BASIX.
An assessor may work with you to change the design and/or the proposed construction types so that the heating and cooling loads of the proposed dwelling achieve the required BASIX standards by the most effective means.
There are currently two AAOs recognised in NSW:
- The Australian Building Sustainability Association (ABSA) at www.absa.net.au
- The Building Designers Association of Victoria (BDAV) at www.bdav.org.au
These organisations can help you locate an assessor suitable to your project.
