Section J Reports

Section J reports to meet the energy efficiency requirements of new developments and alterations to non-residential (or commercial) buildings (classes 2 to 9).

These buildings require a National Construction Code (NCC) Section J report to accompany the design documents at the Construction stage of the Development Application process to demonstrate compliance.

The “Section J” report provides the energy efficiency requirements for the building by assessing the design elements of the proposed development against the Deemed to Satisfy (DTS) provisions of the NCC. Sections covered are:

Part J1 – Building fabric

Part J2 – Glazing

Part J3 – Building sealing

Part J6 – Artificial lighting and power

Part J7 – Heated water supply and swimming pool and spa pool plant

Part J8 – Facilities for energy monitoring

We require floor plans and elevation drawings including:


Internal layout
