Using JV3 verification method, the proposed building achieves compliance if it emits less greenhouse gas emissions than the reference building that follows NCC Section J DTS provisions. To achieve this, the proposed building (depending on the project) must follow one or several measures discussed below:

  • Use insulation in excess of what Section J prescribes
  • Use windows with higher performance values
  • Have lighting control devices like motion detectors or daylight sensors
  • Have high efficiency services (like chillers, boilers and pumps)
  • Use demand-controlled ventilation or heat reclaimed ventilation
  • Install renewable energy systems
