NCC 2019 Section J has officially come into effect. With Deemed to Satisfy provisions becoming more stringent, there has been changes in how buildings can be assessed, including the use of Green Star and NABERS as a method to show compliance. 

Thermal comfort is also a focus on meeting design requirements. In short, a modelling approach is now more likely to be required for buildings.

erbas™ SUSTAIN has created a short summary capturing these changes, which can also be viewed here.

In response to the recent increase in modelling work, such as JV3s, daylight, and thermal comfort, erbas™ SUSTAIN has been expanding our capacity to deliver quality work for our clients. We have begun rolling out a comprehensive in-house training program for our engineers to continue their professional development and enhance their skills in providing accurate modelling advice.
