Environmentally-conscious SA builder Energy Aspect Living has designed its construction processes to eliminate building site waste and avoid the need for on-site skips.
At a time when 38 per cent of waste generated in Australia derives from the construction and demolition sectors, Energy Aspect Living is setting a high standard for construction waste management.
Energy Aspect Living is a South Australian-based GreenSmart Award-winning builder that aims to lead Australia into a new era of sustainable homes and lifestyles.
Energy Aspect Living director Danny Pauley said the company took waste management seriously. “We take it so seriously that we can build a new home without the need for an on-site skip for waste products,” he said.
“Also, in renovations, we find innovative ways to reuse elements of your old home to become new again. Waste management is a bit like the old rule to measure twice and cut once – a bit of planning in advance can make a big difference to both the tidiness of the site and the environmental efficiency of the building process.”
Earlier this year, Energy Aspect Living was one of a handful of finalists in a pioneering contest to design a Zero Carbon House - a $300,000, three-bedroom home that minimises the environmental impact from embodied and operating energy during the 50-year life of the building. The Woodside-based builder is now actively seeking an opportunity to build this breakthrough design near Adelaide.
