59. Construction - Eco House - Conclusion

The Rubix Collective team of contemporary residential designers in Newcastle assist in determining the appropriateness of each of the above measures and their compatibility to the subject site and other selected upgrades, but typically suggest to our clients that the full eco-house upgrade be selected. The environmental footprint of construction and the ongoing environmental impact of the household can be highly reduced, negated, or in some cases even reversed through:

  • Solar power;
  • Carbon reduction;
  • Energy efficiency;
  • Low embodied energy construction;
  • Stormwater management;
  • Water efficiency;
  • Ongoing waste management;
  • Construction waste management; and
  • Native planting and weed management
