We have incorporated all of our key elements into the Showhome. These include:
Universal Design: It's not just about designing for one single type of person, but creating inclusive design so that anyone can enjoy the dwelling today and in the future. With increased door and corridor width, elimination of trip hazards, carefully placed switches for ease of use, and clever use of colour, we are leading New Zealand in implementing future-proofing in homes.
Insulation and Thermal Mass: In any build, this is one of the most important concepts. Our experts provide increased insulation with perimeter edge slabs so that natural heated gained from the sun is retained and utilised. Known as 'thermal mass', we make sure you utilise the suns free energy to the max, creating a warmer, healthier, dryer home while also saving money from heating bills.
Ventilation: Some modern homes are so airtight they actually create a damper home, where moist air is unable to escape. To counter this, we've utilised simple methods like security latches to create airflow manually, and the new Ventient system from APL Joinery - a trickle vent system that passively allows for continuous air changes - creates a healthier, drier environment in the home.
Product Choices: All our products that we have chosen are top of the line in their respective fields. This doesn't mean they're the most expensive - it just means they meet our high standards - and then some. We've implemented ethically sourced, incredibly durable timber like Abodo and Weathertex, brought in luxary Belgotex carpets that are Green Tag Certified, and used tiles that are slip resistant from Tilepot - among many other things!
