Planning and building an Energy Efficient home involves hundreds of tiny decisions, a lot of emotion and significant financial investment. But that doesn’t mean it has to be stressful.

Frequently asked questions

Building can be a daunting process. Everyone recognises that building requires the coordination and organisation of a lot of different resources (people, materials and equipment). You want to know that the person you choose has the right skills to make all this work. Below we have compiled a list of questions which come up on a regular basis to help you decide what type of builder is right for you.

  • How Can You Be So Confident Of Finishing On Time?

    We can be confident of finishing on time for one primary reason –

    SCHEDULE

    We use our online project management system to schedule and then manage your project, our subbies and our suppliers so that they integrate perfectly.

    This means that if we hit a delay with weather we can usually absorb it by looking at the schedule and modifying it to keep your project on track.

    Best of all… the schedule is open book, you can see everything we do, so you know exactly what is happening, when it’s happening and how long for!

  • How Important Is Building An Energy Efficient Home?

    Building Energy Efficient Homes to a high quality is our number one priority. Why is it your number one priority? Two Reasons;

    1. Low ongoing power bills
    2. Increased return on investment (all homes are sold eventually)

    The rise of understanding in the community about energy efficiency and what it means is slowly translating into an understanding that houses that are highly energy efficient are more valuable. This means a truly energy efficient home (the only type we build) will be far more valuable than a minimum compliance one when you come to sell. The current average is 10-15 years for new home buyers to hold their homes. This gives plenty of time for the compound effect of the understanding of energy efficiency to grow in your favour!

  • Who Do I Communicate With During The Build Process?

    You will communicate directly with

    • The project manager
    • Builder
    • Architect
    • Sales team
  • How Does A Higher Energy Rating Benefit Me?

    The higher the energy (or star) rating the more naturally comfortable your home will be to live in. The more energy efficient your home is the lower your energy bills are as you don’t need to use as much power for artificial cooling. Its not just about insulation and heating and cooling though. Appliances, lighting and other items are taken into account. This helps ensure you are reducing your energy consumption on a holistic level, coupled with solar panels, a lot of our clients achieve cost neutral or profitable homes.

  • What Does A Higher Energy Rating Mean for my Running Costs?

    The higher your star rating, the lower the amount of energy is required to keep your home at a constant temperature.

    This reduces your energy bills, and saves you money!

  • Once We Sign The Contract Will The Price Change?

    Your contract price only changes if you make changes that exceed the allowance for the item/s that were in the contract.

    If you make any selection variations outside the inclusions agreed in the contract there is likely to be additional costs and we make sure you know about them ASAP using our online management system.

  • Can I Afford to Build An Energy Efficient Home?

    When you hear the words sustainable, solar passive or energy efficient people often think, “This is going to be expensive”.

    Some of the building products used to gain additional energy efficiency in a home are more expensive than traditional method, no doubt about it.

    If you use the right architects and designers for your home can go a long way to keeping your costs reasonable. Making sure you find the right architect or designer ensures you have someone who understands that;

    • Correct orientation is critical to minimising energy use for cooling, heating and lighting
    • Correct selection of building materials for the different elevations plays a massive role in the energy efficiency outcomes of your build
    • Knows a builder with excellent contacts in the Solar Energy Industry
  • I Don’t Have Drawings Or A Design In Mind – Where Do I Start?
