The Australian Government Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts, through its Solar Hot Water Rebate Program, has thrown its support behind the Shoalhaven sustainable housing project. 

Timbercrete came up with the idea of a constructing a sustainable home in Shoalhaven to showcase sustainable design and provide ideas to the general public as to how they too can make their homes environmentally friendly.

The DEWHA is promoting a number of Australian Government initiatives and hopes to promote ecological sustainability through initiatives like the Solar Hot Water Rebate and the new Low Emissions Plan for renters.

Timbercrete also hope to promote ecological sustainability through its range of sustainable building masonry product. It is made from recycled materials and uses less energy to produce than traditional clay fired bricks. The building masonry product can be used to create bricks, blocks, panels and pavers and is actually stores carbon gas, thus offsetting the use of thousands of cars each year.

Timbercrete's bricks are aesthetically pleasing and are sure to make a valuable addition to sustainable homes.
