“We asked ourselves,
‘What does a new idea for Bendigo look like?’
Our answer was to create elevated homes, light filled, contemporary offices and an active ground level space that connects people with each other.”
How we build a community includes:
The installation of Fibre Optic Cabling will ensure the fastest possible internet connections.
Grassed public open spaces, where building occupants can take a break, enjoy lunch or a coffee and get some sunshine during the work-day.
Conveniently located within walking distance of shops, cafes, carparks, the bus commuter hub and the rail link direct to Southern Cross Station.
During the building design phase, accessibility consultants are engaged to ensure that the building is suitable for people with mobility issues.
Whilst challenging to design and more expensive to build, we feel this feature is a unique value proposition to support residents to age.
Design elements seamlessly integrated include:
Decks and bathrooms slabs to allow water to drain away without needing to have raised hobs;
Increased circulation space in kitchens and bathrooms that allow for mobility aids; and
Ensuring that occupants can move around the entire site without ever encountering a step.
We aspire to be one of Bendigo’s most environmentally responsible developers incorporating a range of sustainability measures to help reduce energy/water consumption and waste output and create a quality indoor environment.
Sustainability measures incorporated into our projects include:
Designed to maximise natural light and ventilation through your home whilst also thermally and acoustically insulating you from the outside when you need it.
To minimise power usage;
Linked to a rooftop solar electricity system, which means that the building can buy green energy at wholesale customer rates, offset the building use by what we generate and charge each occupant for their relative consumption at a reduced relative cost;
Enables electric charge stations for 100% of vehicles on site;
A highly efficient Co2 heat exchanger running on a constant loop not only removes connection fees being duplicated but means water is immediately at temperature and reduces water wastage and heating costs.
Where possible we have removed gas supply to our projects, supplying systems like induction cooks tops and Co2 heat exchangers so that all energy can be carbon neutral.
Increased to ensure that occupants are always comfortable, and the conditioned spaced below the apartments help pre condition the homes so that minimal mechanical intervention is needed to keep the homes comfortable;
On site processing into reusable fertiliser;
Separation and private collection several times a week; and
Reducing resident need to drive.
