Thinking Green

Thinking Green

The need for environmentally friendly building is becoming ever more important to reduce the amount of waste and pollution caused by inefficient design and practices.

To minimise their impact on the environment, we only design and construct homes that are sustainable and ecologically responsible.

We are leading the field in this new, innovative building technology. Through the smart combination of latest building materials, systems and processes we build without sacrificing aesthetics or sustainability.

Our homes look fantastic, are healthy to live in and good for the environment.

They offer:

  • Energy efficiency
  • Thermal protection
  • Superior insulation
  • Acoustic solutions
  • High quality finish
  • Low maintenance
  • Long-term durability
  • Reduced building costs
  • Environmental sustainability

Glass

Walk around our show homes and you’ll see our more generous use of windows and doors are not just a facade. They extend right around our homes welcoming in light and reducing your reliance on electricity.

Timber

Because we believe in “Green Building”, timber’s low “embodied energy” makes it the only choice for our frames! Timber needs only 10% -30% of the energy required to manufacture steel and less than 6% needed for aluminium. So if you care about where you live, don’t consider any other material than timber for the frames of your home!

Hebel

Hebel is an extremely flexible building material. It is fire and white ant resistant and also has outstanding acoustic properties, blocking and absorbing sound from outside and providing excellent acoustics inside. That’s sound thinking! And Hebel’s thermal properties are designed to outperform traditional brick veneer making it perfect for our extreme climate and for any cool thinking property owner. Rendered Hebel also looks great and uses less than a ¼ of the resources and raw material of other masonry, saving on building costs while helping to save the planet we live on!

Roofing

We use lightweight, thermally efficient roofing materials that help to improve the energy efficiency of homes and reduce energy bills by reflecting more of the sun’s heat. This advancement keeps the roof space cooler and provides greater thermal comfort indoors.

These are just a few of the ways we build homes that are energy efficient and have a smaller ecological footprint.
