Ovens & King Builders won the highest accolade - the 2021 HIA Australian GreenSmart Home for a one-bedroom homebuilt to the Passive House standard. The home was also awarded the HIA Australian GreenSmart Custom Built Home and HIA Australian GreenSmart Energy Efficiency.
The judges were impressed by the standard of construction to achieve a comfortable home year-round with minimal energy consumption.
“Thermal performance of the windows minimise air movement and limit heat gain and loss contributing to the superior performance of the home” they commented.
“Material choice reflects the overall high quality of construction and demonstrate a passion for sustainable building.”
HIA Australian GreenSmart Awards recognise the best in sustainable housing. Award winners and finalists make a positive difference to the environment by building energy efficient and comfortable homes.
In congratulating the winners, HIA Managing Director Graham Wolfe said HIA Australian GreenSmart Awards represent the latest in environmental design excellence and sustainable building practices, and recognise HIA members who design and build greener and more liveable homes.
“HIA is committed to sustainable building outcomes through environmentally focussed design, innovation and construction. The winners and finalists are at the cutting-edge in their field and demonstrate expertise and commitment to build superior performing, energy-saving homes for their clients,” Mr Wolfe said.
“Each winner and finalist is congratulated for achieving success at a national level and demonstrating that comfort, security, innovation and value for money can co-exist in a sustainable built environment. HIA members are up to the challenge.”
The HIA GreenSmart program began more than 20 years ago and is a voluntary initiative available to HIA members.
The 2021 HIA Australian GreenSmart Awards are partnered by The Australian Reinforcing Company.
