Sustainable House Day a study in good living

Posted on

Head out to Ginninderry this weekend for everything you’ve wanted to know about sustainable living.

In the quest for the perfect home, it used to be that you judged a suburb and home by its price, prestige and amenities. But these days the quest can include a whole lot more, with prospective home-buyers also taking sustainability factors into consideration. 

For all those who are in the market—or who are designing, building or renovating a home—Sustainable House Day in Ginninderry is not to be missed. 

Providing a one-stop shop for all manner of environmental and home inspiration, Ginninderry will join some 150 homes across the country to showcase Canberra’s most sustainable suburban development. With a display village to start construction next month—and due to open to the public next year—Ginninderry promises cutting-edge technology and best-practice across building, recycling, energy and water infrastructure.

The new community aims to be “a sustainable community of international significance within the capital region” according to Sustainability Manager Jessica Stewart.  

It has already received a six-star Green Star Communities rating from the Green Building Council of Australia across the six key categories of governance, liveability, economic prosperity, environment, design and innovation. 

Last year’s Sustainable House Day drew several hundred to the area and this year, the event promises to be even bigger.  

“There’s is a lot of interest from people these days as to how sustainability and technological factors can make their lives better—from a liveability, affordability, social and environmental standpoint,” said Jessica. 

“This day will be about showcasing all that is available and demonstrating how it all works.” 

The event in Ginninderry will be held at the The Link building in Ginninderry’s first suburb of Strathnairn. The Link is in itself an illustration of cutting-edge environmental design with 24 sustainable features for visitors to explore. 

The day will include tours, talks and demonstrations on everything from choosing land and negotiating budgets and legal contracts, to the ins and outs of heat pumps and solar PV connectivity, how to ensure your solar roofing looks good as well as brings you financial benefits and just how convenient charging electric cars and bikes can be.   

Demonstrations will be held by Electric Vehicles Canberra, Stiebel Eltron, Ozbreed, Master Builders Association, Ideal Building Solutions, McDonald Jones Homes, ActewAGL Solar, Rawson Homes and Monier Tiles. 

There will be plenty of coffee available and something fun for the smallest members of the family with environmentally informative games.
