Energy Efficiency for Commercial buildings

The requirements of the BCA (Building Code of Australia) relating to energy efficiency represent the minimum acceptable building standards as determined by wide consultation with governments, industry and the community. These minimum acceptable standards once contained in the BCA are applicable to all new buildings.

For new building work associated with an existing building, the BCA is generally only applicable to the new building work, to those parts of the building directly affected by the new building work or to those parts where the building's use is being changed.
