Deemed-to-Satisfy (DTS) also know as Elemental Provisions represent a ‘checklist’ solution whereby each building element must meet the requirement set out in Volume Two of the National Construction Code (NCC).
The intent is to ensure that the construction around conditioned spaces have sufficient levels of thermal performance so that the interior is likely to stay warm in cold weather and cool in hot weather.
The main elements which are assessed include the roof/ceiling, walls, floor, glazing and air movement.
There is no flexibility with this method of assessment as each element needs to comply independently. The advantage though is that it is fairly quick and simple.
We will collaborate with you to deliver the solution that will help you gain compliance.
