A PROGRESSIVE DESIGN

BREAKING THE TRADITIONAL BUILDING MOULD

Econstruct specialises in passive solar design and construction, using a vast range of state-of-the-art building products and materials. Well-known throughout Perth for stunning, sustainable abodes, with each new project, Econstruct pays tribute to its good name.

For the project featured here, the clients approached Econstruct with a request for a home that was simple, familyorientated and as efficient as possible.

Going beyond expectation, the expert team at Econstruct made sure that every design and construction element chosen for the home tied in together to not only meet the brief, but true to form, produce a highly efficient, sustainable home that won the HIA GreenSmart Home of the Year Award in 2012.

Employing a north-facing living aspect and windows to allow natural light to flood through the home, the clever orientation also allows the clients to entertain with ease as the large dining and kitchen area opens up through bi-fold doors to the garden and outdoor dining area.

The home features a fully-integrated water and photovoltaic power management system, low-energy and LED lighting, rainwater and greywater tanks that allow water to be recycled back into the home and to the garden, as well as cross ventilation through louvre windows and high level awnings and ceiling fans used throughout to eliminate the need for an air-conditioner.

Econstruct completes between five and ten projects each year and was started in 2001. The company is owned and operated by Geoff Britton, and provides construction, design and project management services throughout metropolitan Perth and surrounding country areas.
