Our commitment to design excellence has been rewarded with the Prima apartment building at Latitude Leighton Beach achieving WA’s first 4 star Green Star- Multi Unit Residential Design v1 rating.
Prima was designed in an environmentally conscious manner, using materials that minimised environmental impact, and accounting for and reducing the erosion and pollution on site. Solar panels are responsible for all hot water, and natural ventilation was maximised to reduce the need for air-conditioning.
In addition, smart technology has been implemented throughout the building to allow residents to monitor their meter usage in real time, and benefit from the efficiencies this brings. Motion censored, LED lighting has been included to reduce usage and lower the cost for residents, and efficient VRV inverter technology will result in an estimated 50% energy reduction for air-conditioning and heating.
High efficiency water fittings and fixtures were installed, along with efficient irrigation. Waterwise plants were deliberately chosen for landscaping, and it is estimated these measures will result in an estimated 15%-25% saving in overall water usage for the landscaped podium gardens.
