Our Commitment to Sustainable Building

Our Commitment to Sustainable Building- We are committed to building sustainable homes and understand the effects our building industry can have on the natural environment. The Northern NSW district around Byron Bay & the Tweed Coast are a beautiful unspoilt region that needs to be kept that way.

We believe that environmental awareness is highly important. Natural Designer Homes is leading the way in Environmentally aware building and has received many Sustainable Building awards.

With the basis of good design to minimize the need for artificial heating/ cooling, careful selection of materials used in construction, right through to the mindful disposal of waste both on & off site – We feel that sustainable building can and should be incorporated into any Building project.

Building sustainably is more than adding on features such as water tanks and solar panels, but also in the construction materials and the often overlooked – construction quality. When the build is of a high construction quality, this minimizes the need for ongoing maintenance utilizing further resources to achieve the standard required.

Key issues towards a sustainable building future;

  • High priority is placed on the health of a building and the occupants future wellbeing
  • Design / solar passive
  • Appropriate materials suited to the environment being built in
  • Sustainable applications / solar power/water etc
  • Toxicity in the finishes that are used in building and ensuring these don’t effect the health of the occupants
  • Recycling of materials
  • On/off site recycling of building waste
  • Quality in construction to minimize ongoing maintenance & repairs
  • Being aware of what can be achieved through sensible & thoughtful building processes.

Environmental awareness is a key issue that needs to be adopted by all members of the building industry. We all have a responsibility to include sustainable processes in our businesses and work towards a longer, healthier future.
