'Alspec House' Berowra Heights, NSW

Regulating the energy efficiency of residential buildings

Constructing a residential property today is more than bricks and mortar. BASIX or Building Sustainability Index is a scheme introduced by the government of New South Wales, Australia in 2004 to regulate the energy efficiency of residential buildings. In essence to ensure new homes use less water and energy. With this in mind Saki Architects and Daniel from CDC set out to meet and accomplish the mandatory performance.

To make this task easier all Alspec® systems not only have the ability to be double glazed but have also been WERS (Window Energy Rating Scheme) tested and are available online

So accessing vital U-Values and SHGC’s (Solar Heat Gain Coefficients) could not be easier. All that was left was choosing the correct product for the necessary location on the building.

This home is an incredible example of the vast product offer available to the Architect, Designer, Owner – builder from Alspec®.
