Living Building Challenge, Avenel
Accuraco has been engaged to support the delivery of a wide-ranging group of projects on a 500ha rural property in Avenel, Victoria. The project includes the construction of a sophisticated off-grid residential property for the family, feral-proof exclusion fencing across the site to accommodate the release of the endangered brush-tailed southern rock wallabies and the planting of more than 150,000 new trees. The site includes a natural water-course which will be rehabilitated to its former condition inviting native fauna to share the land.
The residence is aiming to achieve Living Building Challenge accreditation, providing positive environmental impacts on the human and natural systems that interact with it. In doing so, it will be the first residential property in Australia to do so.
