What is BASIX?
BASIX is The Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) it's aim is to deliver
equitable, effective water and greenhouse gas reductions across the state
and encourages people to reduce energy use through specific design
strategies for lighting, heating,cooling and ventilation. These
environmental outcomes also provides a long term financial
savings for the homeowner - and a valuable contribution to
the sustainable future of our communities. BASIX is an online assessment
tool that checks the elements of a proposed design against sustainability
targets and is an integrated part of the planning system that's
implemented under the Environmental Planning Act and applies to all
residential dwelling types and is part of the development application
process in NSW.
