What is a Section J Report?
A Section J Report, previously known as a BCA Section J Report, is a comprehensive documentation detailing the energy efficiency requirements mandated by the National Construction Code (NCC). This report serves as a vital roadmap for buildings to navigate through the approval stages of new constructions or significant renovations. It encompasses a set of regulations tailored to the unique attributes of each project. At LittleShrub, we specialise in distilling these regulatory requirements into easily comprehensible terms, ensuring clarity for all stakeholders involved in the process.
In the transition to NCC 2022, Section J now stands as the prevailing regulation for energy efficiency across all states and territories. Notably, it incorporates a more intricate assessment of thermal bridging within the thermal performance calculations of the building's envelope. While these calculations are more sophisticated compared to those required by NCC 2016, they offer a markedly more accurate reflection of real-world performance. LittleShrub holds a distinctive position in this domain, having actively contributed to the development of AS/NZS 4859.2, uniquely equipping us to provide expert guidance and solutions.
Drawing from our intimate involvement in shaping the rules, LittleShrub is uniquely positioned to guide you through the updated Section J requirements of NCC 2022, offering the assurance of expert industry support.
