The solutions implemented in this architectual home were required to be energy and resource conscious whilst still providing a functional and comfortable home for the retired owners who were downsizing.

The final scope of works included detailed functionality focused on: low energy LED lighting, use of solar energy, collection of water, acoustics, central locking, emergency lighting, emergency power and remote support.

Other requirements were to include data, telephone, intercom, full electrics, free-to-air TV, pay TV, audio visual, security, lighting, blind, awning and HVAC control.

100 x 3 watt LED light fittings throughout the home were integrated with a Clipsal C-Bus lighting system that enabled the home to draw approximately 300 watts maximum for all house lights compared with 3500 watts with traditional halogen globes, equating to an approximate 90% saving in energy consumption for lighting.
