Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2010 Week 2 Hansard (25 February) . . Page.. 810..
The marketing of these houses as meeting a particular energy efficiency rating is a separate matter to that of compliance with the Building Code of Australia (BCA), however at the time one building was not approved as a residence as it was being used as the site office and based on additional documentation supplied by the certifier, the other was likely to reach a 5 star rating, or a 4.5 star rating at the minimum.
After correspondence in July 2008 with the relevant building certifiers, ACTPLA ascertained that it was highly probable that the remaining 2 buildings met the 2006 BCA requirements. In addition, all of the other buildings in the village approved under the 2005 requirements that did not initially reach 5 stars underwent changes in design to reach the new standard after advice from ACTPLA to the LDA in May 2006. Following the audits, ACTPLA drew the attention of assessors and builders involved to their obligations under relevant legislation and no further action was taken.
(2) No. Verifications of compliance were provided to ACTPLA where required. ACTPLA determined that a further audit of all houses in the display village was not justified given the evidence of compliance provided.
