what do we mean by a sustainable House
We believe a sustainable building is simply products of intelligent, integrated design that meet or surpass the requirements of any standard development project.
It’s not just “bolt-on” environmentally sustainable principles (ESD); it is intrinsic to the design right from the conception.
The whole picture is one of a building as a complete system, with the building siting, form, envelope, systems, and contents simultaneously interacting together and fitting their setting in nature. The resulting building will perform as a resource-efficient and cost-effective system designed to enhance occupants’ productivity and health.
It is about bringing some of the latest sustainable design thinking to enhance the current legislative energy ratings.
When you think about it, a star rating of 6 out of 10 is just a pass!
Most of the advertising in the industry is directed towards luxury homes at affordable price. We believe with the demands associated with living sustainably and awareness to energy costs, it is time the focus changes to quality of space, functionality together with consideration to thermal and solar performance.
Disputes occur between homeowners and builders all the time for a variety of reasons. When communication breaks down, an unbiased third party can step in and provide a successful resolution. We can provide the right mix of building knowledge and expertise to objectively analyse the issues and recommend solutions to deliver a positive outcome.
Looking for an energy efficient house plan?
I just love assisting with creating a design that maximises the "comfort factor" of a home and providing homeowners with low operating costs, a healthier home and more environmental friendly outcomes.
