Hamilton Harbour does not compromise a sustainable future for the sake of style. Rather, thinking of the environment has inspired and influenced each stage of the design process for the entire Hamilton Harbour precinct.
With a variety of sustainable construction techniques adopted, Hamilton Harbour has achieved a four-star Green Star rating from the Green Building Council of Australia, making Hamilton Harbour the first residential project in Queensland to have received such accreditation.
The integration of environmental, social and economic considerations help Devine and Leighton Properties to create developments that are sustainable while still meeting obligations to investors, benefiting stakeholders and the broader community.
Environmental Management Plan – ensuring development meets best practice standards to minimise the effect on the environment during construction.
Metering electricity and water use – apartments will be individually sub-metered for efficiency.
Thermal Comfort – ceiling fans to all bedrooms and living areas to minimise use of air conditioning.
Passive Design – Designed to reduce reliance on air conditioning for heating and cooling.
Greenhouse Gas Emissions – selecting air conditioners, lighting and hot water systems that will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Trip Reduction – Residents are within easy walking distance to community and public facilities, reducing reliance on private cars.
Integrated Water Management – minimise the use of potable water, maximise the use of the collected rainwater and minimise the impact of the development on the surrounding waterways.
Landscape Irrigation – will be from non-potable water sources such as collected rainwater and recycled water.
