Custom design and build

Design & build

Positive Footprints seeks to make the process of creating a sustainable home easy. By having Designers, Builders, Carpenters, and Energy Raters on staff, we are able to provide a total package from initial design, through the whole process of construction, to handing over the keys. All our designs are assessed and improved at design stage using the Accurate® House Energy Rating software for thermal analysis. Predicted room temperatures are analysed throughout the house, allowing any problem areas to be addressed early in the process and each zone fine tuned for thermal performance. Our current designs are generally 8 stars + in energy performance, with our first 9 star house built in 2011.

Design only

For Owner Builders, and those beyond metro Melbourne who will need to use their own builders, we can also design and produce all necessary documentation to building permit stage. This includes subdivisions and development projects that require town planning. A comprehensive Specification document & environmentally preferred materials list helps to ensure the construction process fulfills the shared vision created in the design.
