The Handbook will enable building professionals to master and implement the Energy Amendments to the National Building Regulations XA1- XA3, and the supporting Standards SANS 10400 XA and SANS 204 Energy Efficiency in Buildings. The material has been compiled to serve as a reference for practitioners and contractors.
