BCA Section J Report Structure
Currently there is no standard and agreed upon format for compilation of a BCA Section J report in Australia and it is normally the preferences and experience level of the energy efficiency consultant who writes the report which determines the format and structure of the final product. Eco Certificates has extensive experience achieved from compilation of numerous BCA Section J Reports over the years to confidently use a reporting structure which has so far proven to deliver 100% approval rate in various local government areas in Australia.
We follow the core BCA Section J structure of the BCA Volume 1 and add several sections and sub sections to produce the most easy to follow and professional looking BCA Section J Report for each building type. We have established a consistent and fool proof assessment flowchart in absence of an industry standard for compilation of a BCA Section J Report.
You'll be provided with a secured draft version of the final document before we forward you the submission ready report so your architects or engineers can review the report and introduce modifications or extra provisions into the report.
