Case study prepared by Team Catalyst showing how the design of a community centre in a retirement village in western Sydney might change if the building had been designed to comply with the 2019 version of the energy efficiency provisions in Section J of Volume 1 of the National Construction Code, rather than the 2016 version. The case study focuses on the building fabric provisions. The case study was completed in early 2018 using an early draft version of Section J 2019 and does not fully reflect the final version published in February 2019.
