BASIX stands for the Building Sustainability Index. BASIX focuses on helping to ensure new buildings utilise more rainwater and produce fewer greenhouse gases.
If you are building a new home or adding an extension or granny flat your, BASIX Certificate has to be attached to your development application before it can be processed.
Architects have considered the environmental impact of our building designs very carefully. They have taken great care to ensure our buildings will pass specific targets.
BASIX is flexible. Building designs can meet targets from a large range of options, such as rainwater tanks, water-saving fixtures, improved insulation, passive solar orientation, natural lighting and native plants for gardens.
Here are some of the design features of our online building plans which help with securing BASIX:
• Covered verandas to help shade your home
• Rainwater tanks, plumbed to toilet, garden and/or laundry as appropriate
• Efficient showerheads, toilets, tap fittings
• Adequate insulation
• Cross ventilation
• Good solar orientation
