2010 Homes and News
In 2010 we had a very busy year with winning the Master Builders Award for Excellence in Energy Efficiency for an addition/Renovation we completed in Kelmscott as well as winning the 2010 HIA National and WA Greensmart Awards for our Display Home the Jade 909.
The large renovation was constructed of double brick and tile and achieved an 8 star rating (using BERS). Future needs were considered with an internal design to suit families with babies to older occupants. Built as a new wing to accommodate ageing parents, it complements the original home and enhances the streetscape. This addition was designed to offer clients an affordable, efficient and solar passive home combining stylish features and sustainable technologies. This home was a finalist in the 2010 Master Builders Excellence Awards for Renovations/Additions and also a Winner for Excellence in Energy Efficiency.

Jade 909 Sustainable Display Home
Keeping sustainability in our minds and together with our partners Jade Projects and Think Brick Australia, we constructed our own display home, the Jade 909, situated at “The Vale” Display Village, Wesley Way, Aveley. From the street it looked like any modern new home but in fact, this home represented the future of sustainability.
This revolutionary, 3 x 2 family home boasted a 9 star energy efficiency rating and was also carbon neutral – producing more energy than it required over a year! It incorporated Greensmart principles, water conservation – achieving a 76% reduction in water use, energy efficiency – achieving a 119% reduction in energy use, waste recycling, water-wise gardens and was designed for people of all abilities. The Jade 909 was constructed using recyclable building materials with the best thermal mass qualities and quality energy efficient appliances and fittings throughout adding cost saving benefits to future occupants.

Jade 808 Sustainable Home
Designing energy efficient homes is not difficult. It is about harnessing the natural energies, wind and sun, orientating the home to capture these, insulating and shading wisely, and choosing the best building materials. One of our associated past projects with Jade Projects was the Jade 808 – 8 star energy rated sustainable home, achieved a 72% reduction in water use and a 76% reduction in energy compared with the state average for a typical WA home of similar size.
This past Display home incorporated a passive solar design, solar hot water system, photovoltaic solar system and offered grey water recycling and water wise landscaping amongst many other features. The home was built using double brick construction partly because of the low maintenance and durability factor, but mainly because they have such great thermal mass. Thermal mass is a unique quality of clay bricks. Brick helps smooth out inside air temperatures by storing and releasing heat, reducing the need for artificial heating and cooling. We all know we need to reduce our carbon footprint and we know sustainable homes are the right way to go … Give us a call today to discuss sustainable living.
