2021 HIA Australian GreenSmart Custom Built Home

Winner: Ovens & King Builders, Victoria

Passionate about sustainability, thoughtful design and quality workmanship, Ovens & King Builders has delivered a compact home of the highest performance and finish, earning them the prestige of three national awards.

This one-bedroom dwelling with an industrial-inspired design is a model of sustainable and energy-efficient construction.

The building firm employed the rigorous Passive House Standard of construction to achieve a comfortable temperature year-round despite minimal energy consumption. Sustainability is a key element, with the compact design on a small lot contributing to a reduction in material manufacturing and energy consumption.

Superior performance of the home is attributed to a grid-connected 4kw photo voltaic power supply system; external wall insulation of 100mm PIR foam, battened and fitted with Colorbond Enseam wall claddings and triple glazed, aluminium/timber composite windows. The thermal performance of the windows, minimising air movement and heat gain and loss, is a key factor in the success of the building.

Materials reflect the overall high quality of construction and demonstrate energy efficient homes do not compromise on design possibilities or the level of finish.

Ovens & King Builders’ success was announced virtually in front of a national audience when the 2021 HIA Australian GreenSmart Award winners were revealed on 14 September.

HIA GreenSmart Awards recognise the talents of environmentally-aware residential builders, designers and manufacturers to make homes more efficient.
