Building Code of Australia (BCA) - Vol 2: Part 3.12

As an alternative to an energy "star rating", on some projects it is appropriate to undertake an assessment against the "deemed to satisfy" energy efficiency provisions of the Building Code.

These provisions provide specific minimum requirements for each individual building element.

These provisions provide far less flexibility for cost effective solutions than a Star rating, however there are situations where a deemed to satisfy report is appropriate, such as smaller residential alterations & additions projects.

how we can help...

MC2 Energy Consultants can provide you with an elemental "deemed to satisfy" assessment and report for your project, including calculation of the glazing performance against the minimum efficiency requirements.

In addition to demonstrating compliance with the building fabric and glazing provisions, our reports also set out the minimum requirements to meet all clauses of Part 3.12 of the Building Code of Australia, including services.

how it works...

Our services are provided on the basis of an agreed fixed fee and are generally provided as an efficient two stage process:

stage 1: preliminary assessment

We undertake a preliminary assessment and present our suggested recommendations to achieve compliance. These recommendations are discussed with you along with alternatives if required.

stage 2: final report

Once agreement is reached on the required specifications, a final report is produced and delivered via email ready for submission to the relevant authority.

Our entire service is delivered quickly and efficiently via email and telephone and payment for our service can be made via credit card (Visa or MasterCard), cash, cheque or Direct Bank Deposit. Generous discounts are offered for upfront payment.
