Ashley Beaumont and his team are continually developing new designs to meet the changing lifestyles and expectations of today’s homeowners. Sustainable homes are increasingly being considered as an economical solution to address the rising cost of energy as well as the need to conserve precious resources. To respond to this challenge and make a meaningful difference, Beaumont Concepts has developed the Habitat 8 star range of sustainable home designs.

Though all Beaumont Concepts home designs achieve the industry standard 6-star energy rating, their new Habitat design takes sustainability to the next level by making use of the latest in energy efficient and environmentally sustainable principles. The new Habitat range combines standout design with environmental excellence to achieve a minimum 8 star rating or higher.

Ecoliv prefabricated modular buildings provide a compact, sustainable housing solution, designed to have a minimum 7 star rating. The functional design embraces a green approach to permanent or holiday living in urban, rural and remote locations.

Ecoliv buildings are factory built with all modules transported to the site. These factory-built homes ensure minimal site disturbance and provide significant savings in embodied energy, leading to reductions in overall operational energy.

Featuring clean architectural lines and low maintenance products, Ecoliv buildings offer varied facade options, claddings, window types, internal fittings and colours, which can be selected to create unique homes.

Beaumont Concepts has specified Weathertex for the Balnarring Beach project because the cladding material utilises carbon neutral manufacturing with environmentally sustainable Australian hardwood. Key benefits also included low maintenance and lightweight properties making it the perfect choice for their transportable homes; and the overall aesthetic meeting the client’s brief.

Listing out the benefits of Weathertex products, Ashley Beaumont explains that the product is sustainably manufactured, uses no chemicals in production, utilises locally sourced sustainable hardwoods, is lightweight, which allows ease of installation and transportation, has low maintenance requirements, and offers a choice of profiles.

Ashley Beaumont is confident he will specify Weathertex for another project, and would also recommend it to a friend or colleague.

Weathertex is made in Australia by Weathertex Pty Ltd.
