About Greensmart

What does GreenSmart involve?

The primary objectives of “Building the GreenSmart Way” are to:

  • Develop, demonstrate and promote the technologies, design principles and practices that can significantly improve the quality of Australia ’s built environment;
  • Improve the uptake and adoption of best practice environmental management approaches and their integration into normal business practice;
  • Facilitate change in industry approaches to housing, while meeting community expectations with regard to housing types and costs; and
  • Identify market driven mechanisms to encourage the adoption of environmental innovations in the building industry.

What makes a GreenSmart home?

GreenSmart accredited Homes are a showcase of environmentally sustainable housing design. The main goals are:

  • to improve the energy, resource and water efficiency of the homes;
  • to enable home-owners to waste less and recycle more;
  • to reduce the waste from the building process;
  • to create healthier homes for occupants; and
  • to improve site management during construction.

Benefits of a GreenSmart home include lower energy and water bills, a warmer house in winter, a cooler house in summer, a healthier home for the occupants and less waste going to landfill.

Improving Energy Efficiency

  • Passive solar design features are incorporated into homes to minimise the need for mechanical heating and cooling.
  • Energy saving lights, tinted windows, insulation products, sealing of gaps, energy efficient appliances and both solar and gas hot water systems can be used to save energy.

Improving Water Efficiency

  • Landscape with water wise plant and turf species, mulches, soil conditioners and sensored irrigation systems.
  • Install hot water recirculation systems.
  • Use dual flush toilets, taps and shower heads that have the most stars.
  • Install rainwater tanks and greywater systems for internal and external use.

Recycling and Waste Management

  • Maximise use of prefabricated building components.
  • Minimise waste through accurate ordering procedures.
  • Optimise recycling opportunities and the use of recycled product or product with a recycled content in both the construction of the houses and landscaping works.

Creating Healthy Homes

  • Select materials and paints that have low volatile organic compounds.
  • Design homes that incorporate natural ventilation.
  • Mechanically connect carpet fittings in place of adhesives.
  • Locate flue outlets of gas, water heaters and room heaters away from open windows.

Improving Overall Site Management

  • Minimise site cut and soil exposure time to climatic elements.
  • Incorporate clean site construction practices to reduce soil erosion.
  • Maintain waste in a closed receptacle.
  • Identify and use one site entry and access point.
