The Building Code of Australia requires that all residential buildings need to be assessed against the provisions of Section 2.6 & 3.12 of the code.
There are three methodologies for this assessment process:
- Deemed to satisfy performance provisions
- Thermal Simulation software
- Alternative solution
We pride ourselves on our fast turn around times and also offer an “express “service on request. Zero C is accredited with ABSA (Australian Building Assessors Association) and can offer a unique range of Energy Rating Services nationally, including :
Best practice ESD design advice (Design Stage)
Extend the design of your building and go beyond the minimum compliance requirements to create a state of the art sustainable building. Sustainable buildings use less energy and water resulting in reduced annual operating costs and the people that live within these buildings are happier and more productive.
Preliminary Design Assessment Service (Design Stage)
It is much easier to make subtle changes to a building design at this stage, prior to the detailed design (including services). This unique service allows you to fine tune your design to ensure that the minimum compliance assessment runs smoothly.
