A star role in the future of apartment design
24 February 2020
With its commitment to clever, sustainable design, The Verge is bringing the future of vertical retirement living to the Gold Coast.
And to make it official, we are seeking the Green Star seal of approval for our extensive range of environmentally-friendly features.
For future residents of The Verge, the rating will offer peace of mind they are buying into a home that employs the best technology to create a healthy living environment as well as helping them reduce their cost of daily living.
From computer modelling of all apartments to maximise their thermal efficiency to good ventilation and air quality, The Verge is leading by example.
We are currently seeking a Four Star Green Star Design As-Built v1.1 rating, with independent assessment by the Green Star Building Council of Australia to ensure it meets a benchmark standard for local retirement living.
In addition, we are constructing our apartments at The Verge to the Gold Standard of Livable Housing Design, meaning the homes can adapt to your changing needs.
How is The Verge setting a benchmark for healthy living?
Set beside Burleigh Golf Club’s 10th tee, The Verge is designed for an active lifestyle.
Residents also have access to a rooftop terrace, Wellness Centre, indoor and outdoor activity areas as well as an exceptional coastal lifestyle close to the beach and top dining, shopping and entertainment hubs.
In addition, the architect-designed, light-filled apartments will feature sweeping views over an expanse of greenery that can never be built out and is always well maintained. In this way, they accentuate a connection with the environment, so important for wellbeing.
To find out more about The Verge or to book an appointment, simply get in touch with Rebecca Carlow on 0419 945 915.
What does a Green Star rating mean?
Green Star-rated homes have been built to much higher standards, reducing power and water bills, along with maintenance costs.
Studies have found that Green Star buildings use two-thirds less electricity on average, produce two thirds fewer greenhouse gas emissions and consume half the water.
Green Star buildings are also designed to maximise internal air quality, sunlight and a connection with the outdoors. Facilities for walking, exercising and active living are other hallmarks, making life healthier as well as more enjoyable.
The Verge has benefitted from the expertise of a Green Star advisor since its inception, with all apartments exceeding Queensland Development Code requirements for thermal efficiency in the design phase.
Measures we’ve adopted also include water-efficient fittings and fixtures, solar panels and clever orientation of windows and balconies, paints and sealants with low toxicity, sustainably sourced building materials as well as a commitment to recycling construction waste.
