Australia's most sustainable two storey home* launches in Brabham
18 August 2022 – Peet’s Brabham Estate is setting a new standard for innovative and eco-friendly housing, with the launch of Australia’s most sustainable accredited two-storey display home*.
The Green Homes display at Brabham Estate has been built in collaboration with leading property developer Peet, DevelopmentWA and Green Homes Australia to lead the way in sustainable housing.
The first display home in Australia to achieve a 9+ star NatHERS accreditation* features a lightweight timber framed three-bedroom, two-bathroom, double storey home (288sqm), inclusive of a 14sqm roof garden.
Peet Managing Director and CEO Brendan Gore said the project reflects Brabham Estate’s green initiatives and credentials and has been built with a focus on sustainability and innovation, providing new opportunities for Perth builders and homebuyers.
“Brabham Estate’s ambition is to deliver sustainable outcomes for its residents and the wider community. This project features innovative designs which aim to reduce energy and water use while preserving the community for generations to come,” Mr Gore said.
“The Green Homes display at Brabham is one of several green initiatives throughout the community. The project has been awarded a 6 Star ‘Green Star Community’ certification from the Green Building Council of Australia and is part of Peet’s long-term commitment to sustainability”.
The home is set to be a part of a 17-home display village at Brabham Estate and aims to play an educational role for prospective purchasers and the local community. The project also demonstrates the positive impact and long-term lifecycle benefits of introducing sustainable initiatives.
The leading-edge design aims to encourage new purchaser’s builders to reduce their environmental footprint while improving the affordability over the life of the home.
