Commendation Award for Greensmart Energy Efficiency

Energy Aspect Living was recognised at the 2012 HIA-CSR SA Housing Awards last Saturday night, taking home a Commendation Award for GreenSmart Energy Efficiency.

The Award was received for a home that reflects a love of the land and the environment.  With three generations on the land, John and his partner Theresa knew that any home they built on the Forreston property would need to reflect the family heritage and living in balance with the environment. More than set the home in the landscape, the home had to reduce the dependence on costly external energy and water supplies, match their rural lifestyle, and leave a time capsule for future generations to enjoy.

Danny Pauley, Director Energy Aspect Living; “We were able to share our practical knowledge and experience of energy efficient and sustainable building, to assist John and Theresa to create a home that not only performs great, but looks great as well”.

With the family’s 1950’s home to be demolished to make way for the new family home, Energy Aspect Living transformed salvaged materials back into a new generation of timber floors, tapware, doors, hardwood beams, cabinets and timber benchtops.

Held at the Adelaide Convention Centre, the 2012 HIA-CSR SA Housing Awards celebrate outstanding workmanship, design and innovation in residential building.
