What is a Section J Report?

Also known as a Part J report, a section J report highlights the energy efficiency requirements for a Class 3, 5, 7, 8 and 9 building (commercial), this is defined by Section J (or Part J) of Volume One of the National Construction Code (NCC), formally known as the Building Code of Australia (BCA).Section J Method of Compliance (Deemed to Satisfy) is used when the Evidence of Suitability method using the Deemed to Satisfy (DtS) Provisions of Part J of the Energy Efficiency section of the NCC Volume 1 have been chosen as the most appropriate method to assess the compliance of the proposed development.

How Much Does A Section J Report Cost?

The cost of the overall assessment of a building is dependant on its size and complexity and therefore requires a specific quote to be made. For further enquiries or a obligation free quote please call us or use the link below.

What Can Certified Energy Do to Help?

In your Section J report, we will identify how the new building works in order to comply with the said Deemed to Satisfy provisions. Our aim is to give you the benefit of our years of extensive experience by delivering to you the best energy solution in a cost effective way.

In most jurisdictions, a report describing compliance with Section J is required before a construction certificate is issued. The National Construction Code (NCC) requires Class 2 to 9 buildings, including commercial, retail, apartments and industrial buildings to be evaluated using an extensive and all-inclusive NCC Section J Compliance Report. This report outlines the provisions and solutions that necessary for the development to comply with the requirements outlined in Section J of the NCC.Many councils require such a report to accompany a Development Application and/or a Construction Certificate Application in order to proceed.Certified Energy prepares Section J Compliance Reports using both deemed-to-satisfy (DTS) and verification using a reference building (JV3) methodologies.

The performance requirements of the Deemed to Satisfy provisions include but are not limited to meeting the Total R-Values of roofs, walls and floors, the glazing allowances and air movement requirements. These detailed provisions also include the testing and installation of insulation, thermal breaks, compensation for downlights, floor edge insulation and detailed provisions for building sealing. These specification need to be provided to your registered assessor for the building’s overall thermal performance to be measured.

    These requirements fall into nine main sections in the NCC:

  • Part J0 – Energy Efficiency (J0.1 to J0.3),
  • Part J1 – Building Fabric (J1.1 to J1.6),
  • Part J2 – Glazing (J2.1 to J2.5),
  • Part J3 – Building Sealing (J3.1 to J3.7),
  • Part J4 – Air Movement (not applicable),
  • Part J5 – Air-conditioning and Ventilation Systems (J5.1 to J5.4),
  • Part J6 – Artificial Lighting and Power (J6.1 to J6.6),
  • Part J7 – Heated Water Supply and Swimming Pool and Spa Pool Plant (J7.1 to J7.4) and
  • Part J8 – Facilities for Energy Monitoring (J8.1 to J8.3)

As stated Section J compliance is assessed against nine categories as described in section J of the National Construction Code. Based on the type of dwelling, the building is measured against these categories in order to assess its assumed thermal performance for new dwellings or rate it assumed existing thermal performance for alterations and additions on existing properties. Specifically, each building is assessed using a glazing calculator to assess the overall thermal performance of glazed elements with glazing and frame types taken into consideration as well as window orientation and relative ratio of glass to wall, and glass to floor. A lighting calculator is also use to assess the required and maximum energy usage of any given room within the building in order to reduce energy consumption as well as to meet overall state and national energy efficiency goals.
