BASIX - Additions & Alterations
Dwelling types for BASIX
The Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) aims to deliver equitable, effective water and
greenhouse gas reductions across the state. BASIX is one of the strongest sustainable
planning measures to be undertaken in Australia.
BASIX and the planning system
An integrated part of the planning system, BASIX is implemented under the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act. BASIX applies to all residential dwelling types and is part of the development application process in NSW.
BASIX reduces water and energy consumption in homes across NSW. These environmental outcomes also provide a long term financial saving for the homeowner – and a valuable contribution to the sustainable future of our communities.
That is why you need to use our professional service. As we do BASIX assessments, BASIX certificates day in and day out, we have all the required experience and we will ensure that you will not be out of pocket with unnecessary provisions and technical solutions.
