If you are building a new home, or undertaking renovations of $50,000 or more, you will need a BASIX certificate.
BASIX is one of the strongest sustainable planning measures to be undertaken in Australia. BASIX aims to make all residential dwelling types in NSW energy and water efficient.
Projects granted access to the BASIX pre-July targets must be finalised and certificates lodged with the consent authority no later than 31 March 2018.
The BASIX energy targets and thermal comfort stringency changed on 1 July 2017.
