Deemed-to-Satisfy (DTS) reports enable a building to be assessed relatively quickly and easily by using a check list of the BCA requirements.
Using thermal calculation, the energy usage of the building is given a star rating of up to ten stars using AccuRate Sustainability, FirstRate 5 or BERS Pro Plus software.
ESD offers services for commercial buildings to show compliance with the energy efficiency provisions set out in Section J of the BCA Volume One.
ESD provides standard DTS compliance reports for Class 2-9 buildings, covering all aspects of Section J (J1-J8).
ESD specialises in the use of the JV3 method to show compliance with Section J for Class 3 and Class 5-9 buildings. This method looks at the estimated annual energy use of a building using thermal analysis software and compares it to a reference building designed to BCA DTS provisions.
