Green Home Build: A Showcase of Sustainable Design and Energy Efficiency

The unique Ringwood East project by Green Home Build Australia prioritized sustainable input materials and high energy efficiency, catering specifically to businesses like yours.



This project aimed to create a living space that excelled in both comfort and design, with a strong focus on environmentally friendly features.

Miglas sustainable design

Rather than relying solely on mechanical heating and cooling systems, the home was designed to harness the power of nature. The result is a naturally warm interior during winter and a cool atmosphere in summer, thanks to passive solar design.

During the construction process, great care was taken to recycle and repurpose materials from the previous structure. By giving suitable materials a second life instead of sending them to landfill, we were able to align the project with sustainability principles while also paying homage to the original construction.

Energy efficiency was a key consideration, leading us to build an all-electric home powered by a combination of solar panels and battery storage. This setup ensures the smallest carbon footprint possible. In addition, we incorporated Miglas AliClad double glazed windows featuring Solos OptEma Plus soft Low-E, resulting in high insulation levels. These windows not only provide a sharp and natural contrast to the timber and metal cladding but also allow abundant natural light to fill the rooms.

Energy efficiency was a key consideration

Thanks to these sustainable and energy-efficient choices, the project achieved an impressive 8.4 star NatHERS rating, further highlighting its commitment to environmental responsibility.
