A HIGH SPECIFICATION & FINISH

SUSTAINABILITY

Each home at Fisherman’s Beach has been designed to code for sustainable homes level 3 with a highly insulated and air tight building envelope. The energy-balanced design utilises solar orientation and control to mitigate energy requirements and thus reduces running cost.

Each home at Fisherman’s Beach has been designed to code for sustainable homes level 3 with a highly insulated and air tight building envelope. The energy-balanced design utilises solar orientation and control to mitigate energy requirements and thus reduces running cost.

The design is predicated on a “reduce, re-use, recycle” philosophy which minimizes resource use during construction. Rigorous adherence to waste management strategies ensure that a minimum of any construction waste is sent to landfill.

Trees and new soft landscaping features will further enhance bio-diversity including generous outdoor spaces. These outdoor spaces coupled with direct beach access provide maximum opportunity for physical activity. Solar panels on roofs (where possible).

Each home will also be constructed to meet a high standard of acoustic performance to avoid noise transferring from the outside and between properties.
