ESD report by LID consulting
BCC Section J for ESD reports

NCC / BCA Section J reports

All new commercial buildings need to satisfy NCC /BCA Section J energy efficiency requirements at the design stage prior to obtaining a building permit. There are two broad options in confirming compliance with Section J requirements:

  1. Meet the Deemed to Satisfy (DTS) requirements – ie meet prescribed requirements
  2. Undertake energy modelling on the building and submit an Alternative Solution to show compliance

On most occasions compliance can be achieved by meeting prescribed standards for insulation; glazing; building sealing; mechanical heating, cooling and ventilation; electric lighting levels; and energy monitoring and access to plant for maintenance. The standards differ across the country due to different climate zones, so each building needs to be assessed specifically for its location.

Where it is not easy to comply with the required performance specification in one of the above prescribed DTS requirements, computer modelling can be undertaken. This is usually a more expensive option, but if compliance can be achieved by modelling, this may end up being cheaper than replacing the originally specified element that cannot meet the DTS requirements.
