BASIX and Passivhaus: how passivhaus became cheaper in NSW

Posted by admin on 02/04/2021 at 10:10 am

BASIX now recognises the passivhaus standard as a pathway to meeting the thermal comfort requirements of the State Environmental Planning Policy.  We are very proud to have a played a role in this transition to a lower carbon future, along with our colleague Luc Plowman at Detail Green.

BASIX is world leading in its structure and has been required in NSW since 2004, it requires all projects to meet requirements for energy, thermal comfort and water with the aim of encouraging sustainable residential development.
