What Is a DTS Section J, JV3 Assessment?

JV3 is the alternative assessment method for non-residential buildings which uses a reference building to compare the overall assumed energy consumption of new buildings with respect to their location and climate. There are a number of reasons why a JV3 alternative assessment should be part of your new design. In our world there are no identical buildings when we assess energy consumption. A building with the exact same design, layout, and building materials, can have a different energy use than its twin that may be xx kilometres away. Due to factors like its location and specific weather conditions the annual energy consumption can be significantly different.

JV3 can be used as an alternative solution when a section J report is required, this may be required if a more complex building is not complying through the deemed to satisfy version. JV3 allows much more flexibility with regards to design choices, as architects and designers can create as they see fit as long as it does not exceed the reference buildings energy usage targets. JV3 is much like a non-residential equivalent of NatHERS modelling, allowing flexibility to choose glazing and building elements as long as it stays within the annual energy consumption of the deemed-to-satisfy (DTS) building.

A JV3 assessment requires an accurate 3D model of the proposed building with the correct location, orientation and climate information imputed into the software. Lighting, occupancy and external heat loads are also required to assess the overall operational usage of the building, which is then assessed for every hour throughout the year and compared against a reference building.

This process involves the comparison of a proposed design with a DTS reference building whilst also taking into account the specific location and weather data of the proposed building. The proposed building must not exceed the annual energy consumption of the DTS building, this allowing much more flexibility when designing, with building elements being able to be chosen as long as the sum of the whole building does not exceed the maximum annual consumption. The JV3 alternative assessment can be used to attain certain flexibility when designing, such as glazed elements (e.g. the amount, orientation and quality), the building fabric (e.g. the envelope, facades, floors, walls, and roof) and when planning the services (e.g. air conditioning, lighting and heating) as opposed to just a DTS Section J report.

This is generally more expensive than DTS (deemed to satisfy) section J compliance as it takes much more time to assess, and much like the section J report the price is project based and varies greatly depending on size and complexity, therefore to get a quote on a JV3 report for your project click the button below for an obligation free quote or call us and we can discuss your options.Request A Quote
