Australia’s first six star residential project
Shout Ridge, a residential development in the Defence Housing Australia (DHA) Crimson Hill precinct at Lindfield has been awarded a six Star Green Star – Multi Unit Residential Design v1 Certified Rating. This is the first time this rating has been given to a residential project in Australia.
Due for completion in September 2016, Shout Ridge comprises 88 apartments in two buildings on a site nestled into the edge of the Lane Cove National Park. From the outset, sustainability was a priority for DHA, appointing only consultants with strong sustainability credentials to the project. These included – Arcadia Landscape Architecture, Architectus, Cundall, Enstruct and TSA.
The Shout Ridge project design team worked closely together throughout the whole design process to achieve this rating, which represents “world leadership” in environmentally sustainable design and was awarded by the Green Building Council of Australia.
