What is Sustainable Housing Design?

Building to reduce your use of non-renewable resources – electricity and gas is the largest factor of consideration in sustainable housing design. This can be largely achieved through clever passive solar design coupled with the correct orientation of the home with respect to the sun.

Sustainable housing design offers enormous lifestyle advantages including: reducing the on-going living costs from the time you move in to your new home, reducing water use, and in general, building to reduce your carbon footprint. The result is lower environmental impact, greater cost savings to the occupant and more luxurious lifestyle benefits based on a more liveable, comfortable home design.
