CATEGORY: Residential Subdivision
CERTIFICATION: Ecosystems, Waste, Energy, Materials, Water and Community
OneOneFive Hamilton Hill is an innovative new residential estate being developed on the former Hamilton Senior High School site, south of Perth.
DevelopmentWA has taken every opportunity to ensure that the project is showing leadership across all aspects of sustainability. Some features include:
- A resource recovery strategy that has seen 100% of demolition materials reused in ways that maximise the value of those materials, including all masonry materials being reused onsite with large resultant savings in truck movements and fuel consumption.
- An urban greening approach to landscape with many of the best existing trees retained and over 350 new trees being planted, and a comprehensive approach to improving biodiversity and reducing urban heat.
- The landscape is supported by best practice in water efficiency and management, including a sustainable-draw community bore that will serve both public and private landscape.
- A net zero energy target for homes and for the development as a whole.
As well as being recognised by the UDIA, the project has been recognised as a Waterwise Gold development by the Water Corporation in acknowledgement of best practice in water efficiency, stormwater management and reuse, and combining excellent landscape and urban cooling outcomes with dramatically reduced mains water consumption.
This exciting new estate will feature approximately 232 lots and offer a diverse range of new housing options, including single residential homesites, terrace homes and micro lots along with four grouped housing sites.
Residents at OneOneFive Hamilton Hill will be part of a thriving new community, with quality public open space including nature play areas, a kick-about space, barbecues and cycle paths, and access to excellent transport links and existing infrastructure.
As one of DevelopmentWA’s Innovation Through Demonstration projects, OneOneFive Hamilton Hill is targeting the highest levels of sustainability and aims to deliver an ecologically sensitive development – minimising water and energy consumption, while retaining the site’s landform, trees and biodiversity.
It will also celebrate and reflect the site’s history as a school, and its indigenous heritage, through street names, public art, and built form.
