 BU522 H1 compliance options

BU522.jpgThe objective of New Zealand Building Code clause H1 Energy efficiency is to facilitate the efficient use of energy.

Clause H1 sets out the requirements for a range of building types and energy uses, and the H1 compliance document sets a choice of ways of complying with these requirements.

This bulletin describes how clause H1 and the H1 compliance document work together and looks at determining the most appropriate compliance method and functional requirements for different types of buildings.
