Building or renovating a home will require a Basix certificate. The Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) is part of NSW planning system (DA and CDC processes) which aims to deliver water and energy savings measures across the state. The Basix assessment process can be done using the
online assessment tool or by a qualified assessor. The assessment checks the proposed design against a set of sustainability targets.
Basix effectively reduces home energy and water consumption in NSW which provide financial savings for homeowners, thermally comfortable homes as well as good sustainability outcomes for the community.
