What is BASIX & How does it work?

BASIX & How it Works

BASIX, short for the Building Sustainability Index, is an essential regulatory requirement for anyone planning to build a new home, undertake significant renovations, or install swimming pools in New South Wales. It’s designed to ensure buildings meet specific sustainability and energy efficiency benchmarks. The program sets compulsory compliance targets across water usage, energy consumption, and thermal comfort, aiming to boost the overall sustainability of homes within the state. By encouraging the integration of alternative resources, such as water tanks and solar panels, and leveraging the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS) for precise heating and cooling assessments based on geographic location, BASIX reduces the need for mechanical cooling and heating solutions. This not only contributes to a more sustainable environment but also offers long-term savings for homeowners. Engaging with experts like Frys Energywise from the outset can simplify the BASIX compliance process, ensuring your project meets all necessary standards efficiently.
