Industry leader, Solar Solutions, has made its name through stunning home design and a commitment to energy efficiency.
Solar Solutions has been recognised yet again for its excellence in the field, winning multiple awards at the 2009 Victorian HIA-CSR Housing Awards including the Energy Efficient Housing Award for its Balnarring Beach Project and the Best Custom Built Home $700,000–$1 million for the Upper Beaconsfield Estate Project.
Solar Solutions was also honoured with Building Designer of the Year at the 2008 NSW Building Designer’s Association and also won the award for Most Sustainable Building. This was topped off by winning the 2008 HIA National GreenSmart Energy Efficient Award.
Using various products, Solar Solutions can incorporate energy efficiency into any house design without compromising the style. The main focus is to ensure your new home is a healthy environment that’s able to reduce allergy conditions such as hayfever and asthma, as well as being comfortable all year round.
Each individual design considers your local climate and the surroundings that affect the site. Solar Solutions assesses your site, then designs your new home to keep it warmer inwinter and cooler in summer without resorting to expensive heating and cooling systems.
The stunning home featured won Solar Solutions the 2008 award for Best Residential Building Designer in Victoria, voted by HIA Victoria, and achieved a huge energy-efficiency rating of 43 points.
“To put this in perspective,” explains Darren Evans of Solar Solutions, “you need seven points to achieve a five-star rating and 19 points to achieve a six-star rating. We exceeded these levels by using good design that respected the existing environment on the site, and the right selection of materials.”
Each house design by Solar Solutions is individual and aimed at the style the client prefers, be it contemporary, country or coastal. The company’s award-winning 3D visualisation techniques ensure there are no surprises on the site. Clients can view the home, select colours and “walk around” their new home before it’s even built. This process helps them visualise their homes and enables the builder to understand all the construction details of a new home.
New Eco Dwellings Planbook
Solar Solutions has just released the Eco Dwellings Planbook, which has been specifically designed to suit suburban house blocks. With 18 new plans and more than 40 elevations contained in the book, the layout system allows you to choose a house to suit your block.
“I am very excited by the new planbook,” Darren says. “It takes the commonsense approach that we use in our custom-design service and gives the client the information they need to select the right home.”
Solar Solutions also has standard planbooks and existing home upgrade packages. The standard plans are designed to suit many different sites and are all energy-efficient. The planbooks can be ordered directly from the website.
“We have also just launched the new Solar Shop Online, where you can buy some of the common products that we use in our great energy-efficient homes and install them in your own home. Whether it’s for an existing home that needs to be made more energy-efficient or a new home, we have the products that can make your home cheaper to run and more comfortable to live in.”
