DEVELOPER: Villawood and South East Water
CERTIFICATION: Ecosystems, Waste, Energy, Materials, Water, Community
A first for Villawood and South East Water – this unique partnership sees Australia’s most water and energy-efficient urban residential development come to fruition. Creating new boundaries for what can be achieved in sustainable living through the Aquarevo development and conveniently located in Melbourne’s South East growth corridor; this residential subdivision will be well connected to surrounding amenities. The development comprises approximately 460 residential lots (350m2 – 954m2), more than 5 ha of open space and 4km of walking trails and bike paths.
With cutting-edge technology, such as OneBox® from South East Water, in place, water and energy use will be monitored to maximise efficiency in every home. Up to 70% of household water will be saved by using rainwater tanks to supply hot water, and recycled water to be supplied for toilets and gardens. As a community, Aquarevo can make an important contribution towards reducing pressure on the drinking water supplies, so there’s more water for the future.
