The most significant update to the National Construction Code (NCC) in more than a decade will increase the required thermal performance of homes from the current level 6-stars NatHERS to the equivalent of 7 stars, according to a draft update released this week for public comment.
This is long-anticipated news for all TPAs, and DMN and our TASC Force are working to provide comment on proposed amendments to energy efficiency and condensation technical provisions, via this second and final stage of public consultation, closing at 11:59PM AEDT on Sunday 17 October 2021.
