GreenSmart Sustainable Home of the Year
Winner: Buildsmart Constructions
This architecturally designed home suits its surrounding neighbourhood due to the natural tones and materials used. The workmanship was of a very high standard, using custom and recycled materials, various James Hardie and green certified building products. The energy ratings exceed regulation with the north facing, outdoor area featuring large eaves to give protection from the summer sun. The list of sustainable products used in this house is endless - double glazed windows, top insulation, led lighting, awnings and even the panel lift door is insulated. Effective cross flow has been achieved by using large louvres and awnings that open and close manually. The plants in the garden were also selected due to their low watering requirements.
