Conscious Homes Services
Environmentally Sustainable Design considers the impact of all stages of the life cycle of a building from
natural resource use and production, included embodied energy, construction methods, performance of
materials in a building and the eventual recycling of the components.
Made of mud and recycled base bricks together with a light weight skeletal steel frame and plantation ply roof beams our ESD Conscious Home is very resource efficient.
Passive Solar Design
The final building is thermally efficient with comfort levels far higher than conventional buildings and houses. It rates over 6 stars on the SEAV First Rate program.
Waste Water Treatment
Concealed waste water treatment plant clarifies and reuses all waste water both grey and black. The purified water is pumped to an underground dripper system that waters the indigenous and vegetable gardens.
A space efficient 80,000 litre underground rain water tank catches all the roof water for use as the total domestic water supply
