AVID Property Group takes a carefully planned approach to the delivery of sustainability initiatives for each community it creates. Harmony is definitely no exception.
Recognising our dedication to outstanding design and planning across the elements of ecosystems, waste, energy, materials, water and community, Harmony has achieved the coveted ‘Six Leaf’ national EnviroDevelopment certification in masterplanned communities from the Urban Development Institute of Australia (UDIA).
Our sustainability endeavours are an investment we’re proud to make, because we know they delivers so much more to the community in terms of positive environmental management.
From first plans to construction and ongoing neighbourhood initiatives, an AVID Property Group address is much more than a home; it is our legacy for a more future-focused, responsible and sustainable living for generations to come. For AVID residents, this means that we create neighbourhoods that strive to achieve the following:
RESPECT THE ECOSYSTEM
We work to protect and enhance existing native ecosystems, encourage natural systems, native biodiversity, and rehabilitate degraded sites wherever possible.
We take steps to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas (GHG) production across the development, over and above current regulatory requirements.
This considers reduction of greenhouse gases through energy efficient appliances and fixtures, passive design and behaviour change.
USE MATERIALS SENSITIVELY
We carefully consider and encourage use of more local, recycled and re-used building materials to ensure our communities are brought to life with as little environmental impact as possible.
CONSERVE AND RE-USE WATER
We implement measures to reduce potable water, from providing access to natural resources to recycling waste water for irrigation of community areas.
GROW COMMUNITY SPIRIT
We take every measure from planning to implementation to nurture more vibrant, cohesive and inclusive communities and encourage the growth of neighbourhood spirit.
