- BASIX –
Building Sustainability Index
BASIX is a web-based
planning tool that measures the potential performance of new residential
dwellings against sustainability indices. BASIX ensures each dwelling design
meets the NSW Government's targets of 40% reduction in water consumption and
25% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, compared with the average home. The
greenhouse target will increase to 40% from July 2006. Each development
application for a residential dwelling must be submitted with a BASIX
Certificate. A Certificate is issued once a BASIX assessment has been
satisfactorily completed. The building applicant, (eg. architect, builder,
owner builder) is responsible for completing the assessment, ensuring the
BASIX commitments are clearly marked on the plans, and submitting the BASIX
Certificate with the development application. The sustainability indices are
energy, water and thermal comfort.
