Sustainable homes

Today’s new homes are much greener than the homes of the past. New homes must include energy and water efficiency features to reduce demand on resources.

Today’s new homes are much greener than the homes of the past. New homes must include energy and water efficiency features to reduce demand on resources.

Today’s new homes and renovations are much cleaner and greener than the homes of the past. New homes must include energy efficiency and water efficiency features aimed at helping the home owner save money, and reducing the demand on our precious natural resources.

Energy efficiency

It’s important for builders to be aware of the requirements for insulation under the National Construction Code (NCC) to ensure that insulation complies with relevant Australian Standards for quality and performance.
