Yes. Some criteria in each category may relate to the outcomes of another category in BASIX. Two examples of such instances would be:

1- Using water-efficient fixtures reduces the demand for hot water and thus, reduces the required energy to heat the water. This grants scores in both categories.

2- Going beyond a 7-star rating means that the building performs very well in reducing the demand for artificial heating and cooling. This means that the required energy for air-conditioning equipment will be reduced also.
