Frequently Asked Questions
For commercial buildings (i.e. Class 2 common areas, Class 3 buildings and Class 5 to 9 buildings) a complete review of the building fabric provisions was undertaken. A number of changes were made as a result of this review. Significantly, a whole-of-façade approach has been adopted in the Deemed-to-Satisfy Provisions. This requires the thermal performance of glazed and non-glazed elements to be combined to determine the overall thermal performance of façades. Furthermore, the provisions for commercial buildings require the necessary level of insulation to take account of thermal bridging in accordance with AS/NZS 4859.2:2018 Thermal insulation materials for buildings — Design.
For residential buildings (i.e. Class 1 buildings, Class 2 sole-occupancy units and Class 4 parts of buildings) no change was made to the stringency or methodology of the building fabric provisions. However, for both commercial and residential buildings compliance is required with AS/NZS 4859.1:2018. Thermal insulation materials for buildings — General criteria and technical provisions.
