Kingspan contributes to award winning home

Kingspan Insulation has contributed to Evoke Design Group’s award winning 8-star designed home, being built in South Fremantle in Western Australia.

Taking out the HIA 2010 GreenSmart Design Concept Award, the environmentally efficient housing honours set the benchmark in progressive building techniques and products, recognising environmental consciousness and efficiency in the design of new homes.

Evoke Design Director Steve Kinchin said Kingspan’s Air-Cell Glareshield was instrumental in helping Evoke to achieve the coveted 8-star thermal efficiency rating.

“Insulation is the quiet achiever in energy efficiency. Using Air-Cell insulation dramatically reduces heat loss and gain, and really boosted the thermal ratings of the walls.”

Kingspan Insulation Managing Director Scott Gibson said the company was proud to be involved in such an innovative, environmentally friendly initiative.

“Evoke Design Group is on the cutting edge of environmentally efficient housing in Australia. Partnering with them was a great opportunity to showcase what Kingspan can offer homes aiming to be more energy efficient and environmentally conscious.”

Passive solar design measures combined with environmental features like grey water system, low VOC paints, a 10,000L rainwater tank, a 1.5kW photovoltaic (PV) system on the roof help to cut heating and cooling costs by 75% compared to the average West Australian 3.5 star rated home.

The home was described as aesthetically pleasing, warm and inviting by the judges.The exceptional design and rammed earth thermal walls penetrating the main part of the house was also credited for its stand out appearance.
