Environmentally Sustainable Building
Sustainable building is about taking conscious steps through your construction to minimise your home’s environmental impact, now and into the future.
At Mamet Homes, our sustainable home builders know how to apply common-sense, eco-friendly building practices that help you meet this goal without breaking the bank.
This includes following eco principles such as reducing waste and material use, removing the need for trades or materials, repurposing and reusing materials, and recycling.
If you have a personal sustainability philosophy, we’ll incorporate your philosophy into our practices throughout your new build or renovation, while still keeping your budget in check.
Why work with Mamet Homes?
Get more bang for your buck
Sustainable building doesn’t have to come with an unsustainable price tag. We keep your costs down by applying tried-and-true eco-friendly principles to your build and skipping expensive eco fads.
Before construction begins, we’ll collaborate with you to decide how best to minimise waste from your project by reusing and repurposing materials and recycling wherever possible.
Reduce your carbon footprint
We help you limit your home’s carbon footprint by using Australian-made products rather than imported ones, and reducing the number of trades and materials your build requires.
Choose passive solar design
If you’re building a new home, you can opt to customise one of our architecturally-designed passive solar home plans, which have been created to suit different blocks and locations. (Coming soon.)
Experience peace of mind
With a fixed-price contract and guaranteed timeline, you’ll experience peace of mind knowing your home won’t just be sustainably built, it will also be on-time and on-budget.
Apply your eco philosophy
Do you have specific sustainable values you want to see reflected in your build or renovation? Our sustainable home builders will incorporate your values into our processes.
Unlike most building companies, we don’t get our builders to throw together quotes after working 10-hour days. Instead, your quote is compiled by a professional estimator and quantity surveyor. That way, we can ensure every variable is accounted for, every selection is included, and every budget blowout risk has been mitigated before we present you with a fixed-price quote.
We reject the industry practice of quoting low and profiting from variations. The prices on our quotes may appear higher than quotes from other builders. However, with our quotes, what you see is precisely what you’ll get – you won’t be on the hook for any expensive variations down the road. Furthermore, you can be confident we’ve taken the time to consider all the ways we can minimise waste and planned ahead to ensure your home’s construction is as sustainable as possible.
Our fixed-price quotes are fair, reasonable, and realistic. Everything is documented, detailed, and agreed upon, so you can be confident there will be no nasty surprises during construction. Once you agree to the quote, we provide you with a fixed-price contract.
In addition to taking the time to compile an accurate quote, we speak to all our suppliers and subcontractors to understand their lead times and deliverables before we begin work on your home. This allows us to confidently and accurately schedule your project and offer you a reliable timeline. And because our all-inclusive quote protects you from expensive variations, you don’t need to worry about any variation “spanners” in your timeline “works”.
Your personally-dedicated app (and online portal) lets you follow the progress on your home with a daily log that includes photos, continually updated scheduling, links to all the trades working on your home, a record of your financials, and details of all your selections.
This personalised app allows us to effectively communicate with you every day and puts you firmly in the driver’s seat of your project.
Led by our head builder, Adrien Mamet, your home will be built by our core Brisbane-based team of sustainable home builders, carpenters and apprentices. Work that needs to be done by other trades will be subcontracted to our fully-vetted and trusted contractors, all of whom meet our strict standards for experience, qualifications, reliability, and commitment to delivering high quality finishes on all our projects.
We oversee all the work on your home to ensure it meets our standards for quality.
Our clients regularly comment on the high calibre of the trades we work with, and always share how impressed they are by our own crew. They particularly appreciate our commitment to keeping your site clean and tidy from start to finish.
