The Building Sustainability Index (BASIX) aims to deliver equitable, effective water and greenhouse gas reductions across New South Wales.
Certification is required for the development of all new homes, specific house alterations and additions. Builders are assessed for BASIX compliance and require a certificate before they can build.
Clark Tanks Can Help You Meet Targets
Rainwater tanks are a great way to achieve BASIX certification for your proposed development. Rainwater collection is assessed based on:
- the capacity of the rainwater tank being installed
- roof catchment area that will be connected to the rainwater tank
- how the tank water will be used
- running overflow from your rainwater tank to another tank for collection and re-use.
