Slate House is one of the most sustainable residential developments in Victoria, with a minimum 8.2 Star average NatHERS thermal performance rating and 100% fossil fuel free building operations.
Capitalising on renewable energy through an embedded energy network, Slate House operates 100% free of fossil fuels. This all-renewable energy network provides reduced metering costs and running costs across the lifetime of the home. Slate House further educes environmental impact through energy-saving LED light fittings that lower operating costs by up to 30% and last up to 25 times longer than halogen incandescents.
Slate House offers residents the potential to naturally heat and cool their homes. Achieved through a superior building fabric, interior spaces are comfortable all-year round due to highly insulated windows and walls that minimise heat loss and gain. Natural cross ventilation through each of the dwellings ensures residents stay comfortable indoors and connected to the outdoors.
With environmental impacts of burning fossil fuels now widely understood, the shift towards renewable energy is critical. In line with this philosophy, Slate House is carbon neutral in operations and gas is not connected to the building. Instead, kitchens features induction cooktops that are 40% more efficient than electric alternatives. Each home also utilises a high-performance, air-to-water heat pump to generate hot water without an electric immersion element.
We’ve designed Slate House with your health in mind, and all interior finishes are selected to help residents breathe easy. Some of the most harmful elements found in paints and finishes are Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), which are carbon-containing solvents that vaporise into the air as paint dries. Water-based, low-VOC paints are used throughout and low-sheen 2pac paint is applied to the typical joinery boards.
