Sustainable homes of the future
Released 10 January 2011

In a joint venture with Landcom and Blacktown City Council, Clarendon Homes will construct three sustainable homes at The Ponds, Sydney.

Each will demonstrate sustainable technologies and features that can be incorporated into residential building.

Construction of a 6-star* home, 8-star home and 10-star home (the maximum star rating awarded for sustainability) will begin this year. The 10-star home aims to generate zero emissions and leave no impact on the environment.

*The star qualification regards the building’s energy rating. Currently, NSW building regulations require all newly built residential homes to have a minimum 5-star energy rating.
