Design & build
Positive Footprints seeks to make the process of creating a sustainable home easy. By having Designers, Builders, Carpenters, and Energy Raters on staff, we are able to provide a total package from initial design and authority approvals, through the whole process of construction, to handing over the keys. All our designs are assessed and improved at design stage using the Accurate® House Energy Rating software for thermal analysis. Predicted room temperatures are analysed throughout the house, allowing any problem areas to be addressed early in the process and each zone fine tuned for thermal performance. Our current designs are generally 8 stars + in energy performance, with our first 9 star house built back in 2011.
Because we are Designers and Builders we have an intimate knowledge of costing, which we use in the design process to make sure at the end of documentation, you have a design that will fit your budget. Our build team then make sure that the construction is built, to perform as designed.
For Owner Builders, and those beyond metro Melbourne who will need to use their own builders, we can also design and produce all necessary documentation to building permit stage. This includes subdivisions and development projects that require town planning. A comprehensive Specification document & environmentally preferred materials list helps to ensure the construction process fulfils the shared vision created in the design.
For further peace of mind, we can provide Contract Administration by arrangement, to oversee the build quality.
