BASIX stands for the Building Sustainability Index and aims to accommodate NSW with more resilient dwellings through reducing greenhouse gases and water consumption.Obtaining a BASIX certificate means your residential building will have passed the NSW Government’s environmental targets. As well as contributing to a sustainable future of urban planning, you as the homeowner will also financially benefit through reduced water and energy bills.
A per capita basis is used to measure the benchmarks for water and energy:
While general figures are used to represent the whole of NSW, variations are also implemented to reflect regional climate areas, maintaining parity throughout NSW without certain regions being charged excessively.
The development application stage of every new residential dwelling built in NSW of $50,000 or more require a BASIX certificate. Residential dwellings include:
Additionally, alterations and add-ons to existing dwellings which cost greater than $50,000 also require a BASIX certificate.
If your project does not require simulation:
The cost can range from $200-$350, inclusive of GST and government disbursements which vary depending on the size of the project.
If your project requires simulation:
Usually an hourly fee of $100 is charged depending on the number of hours required to complete a project. Single dwellings take approximately 4 hours to complete and therefore cost approximately $400. This is in addition to the cost of the BASIX certificate and government disbursements.
In order to change your BASIX certificate commitments after the construction or complying development certificate has been issued, you will need to revise your BASIX certificate in addition to applying for new construction or complying development certificates.
