National Construction Code 2019 Section J: Aged Care Facility Design – a Case Study

Start time: 12:30pm AEST. Learn how to improve energy efficiency in building design and comply with NCC 2019 Section J using a typical design for an aged care facility.
National Construction Code 2019 Section J: Aged Care Facility Design – a Case Study

An Engineering Education Australia webinar:

The release of the National Construction Code (NCC) 2019 edition introduced significant changes to Section J Energy Efficiency. These changes are a big step up from the 2016 edition and aim to improve energy efficiency across the built environment in Australia.

This webinar demonstrates the impact of the changes to Section J on a typical aged care facility design using a case study that complies with the 2016 and 2019 editions.

This will include an analysis of the changes required to the building fabric and systems, the technical and cost impacts of these changes, and the likely challenges to be faced by design and construction teams to meet the new requirements.

Learning outcomes

  • Understand the changes to Section J of the NCC
  • Know the requirements to comply with NCC 2019 Section J
  • Be able to improve energy efficiency in building design
  • Understand performance outcomes and benefits of various energy efficiency solutions
  • Know how to overcome the likely challenges in meeting the new requirements

This project is supported by the Australian Government Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources through the Climate Solutions Package, and Engineers Australia’s Environmental College.
