Home Living : December 13th 2011
HLN - HOME LIVING: NORTH, Tuesday, December 13, 2011 3 ECO CASE STUDY NATURALLY FRIENDLY Benchtops contain recycled paper. THERE are many recycled ma- terials featured in this home: Ecomax 1 concrete: This contains 20 per cent replace- ment of the cement with fly ash and slag from power station waste. This also improves the strength of the product; Eco-top benchtops in kitchen and bathroom: These look like stone but contain 50 per cent recycled paper and cardboard; Floorboards: Made from fast-growing bamboo. They are easy to clean and don't harbour dust, making them ideal for asthma sufferers; Weathertex: An engineered weatherboard made from tim- ber fibres from certified su- stainable forests and natural wax used throughout; Garden: Uses captured water held on-site to sustain a frog and fish population ECO-BUILDING BUILDING THE FUTURE SUSTAINABILITY STARTS AT HOME The Greencycle home at The Ponds has a seven-star rating. LANDCOM has opened its second eco-living display home at The Ponds in Sydney's north- west --- the seven-star rated Greencycle home. Clarendon Homes was selec- ted by Landcom to build the eco- display homes showcasing sus- tainability concepts and prod- ucts for the project home indus- try and housing market. Landcom director of sustain- ability and policy, Steve Dris- coll, said the Greencycle home showed how affordable recycled products and clever materials could help lower carbon output. ''It also incorporates univer- sal housing principles into the design, enabling people to po- tentially live in their home over their lifetime without the need for major adaptation or special- ised design,'' Mr Driscoll said. Clarendon Homes design and sustainability specialist, Shaila Divakariam, said concrete was the main CO2 contributor when building a home, contributing 3 per cent to 5 per cent of green- house gas emissions globally. She said replacing standard Clarendon materials in major building elements with sustain- able materials in the Greencycle home reduced CO2 emissions by 30 per cent.
