A New Way to Build Sustainably and Affordably in Sub-Alpine Climate
Sited at 980m above sea level with beautiful views of Mt Buller and the Great Diving Range, this stunning 193 sq.m. home was completed in a matter of weeks – all thanks to Habitech’s innovative prefab modular construction system. The Melbourne-based system uses high-performance thermal insulated Structural Integrated Panels (SIPs) that are prefabricated and delivered to site in a flat-pack format. These are then assembled on site to secure and weatherproof the home. The house is also designed to be entirely sustainable, with a photovoltaic solar panel for electricity; with waste water treatment and disposal; and rainwater capture.
In a very timely manner, (Habitech) delivered a house that functions to the highest standards… with its thermal performance (and) energy efficiencies… It has met all of our aspirations for a sustainable and beautiful home.
At the same cost as traditional design and building options, Habitech’s system delivers architecturally designed buildings that are:
- custom designed
- more environmentally sustainable
- faster to build
- stronger, better quality
- cheaper to run
- more comfortable
- healthier – utilising heat recovery ventilation
- cost effective to build
