Medium Density Residential Projects

With major cities around Australia experiencing an apartment “boom” – how many of these apartments are set up for long term energy efficiency and value to both owners and tenants? Not many. From our experience, time after time we come across medium density residential projects thrown up as cheaply as possible, following conventional, outdated insulation techniques that barely satisfy BCA Section J, with little regard for the comfort and sustainability of the new dwellings.

A THERMOMASS insulated panel  is no more expensive than conventional concrete/stud wall/bulk insulation/ plasterboard wall constructions and is vastly superior in thermal aspects. By spending a little more time getting things ‘right’ residential projects can exceed all expectations, enhancing both the long-term comfort of the inhabitant and the reputation of the developer.

MAMMOTH - Acoustic Insulation - Medium Density Residential Projects THERMOMASS - Concrete Insulation - Medium Density Residential Projects

THERMOMASS insulated concrete sandwich panels are the original and best way to insulate concrete walls. The superior XPS insulation and the high thermal mass in the walls means a highly energy efficient structure.  In addition to fast construction times, THERMOMASS is the best solution for building and concrete insulation such as educational spaces.

MAMMOTH Thermal and Acoustic Insulation Panels are made from 100% lofted thermally bonded polyester fibres. The panels are designed to improve thermal and acoustic performance of under soffit for residential and commercial buildings which will enhance well-being and comfort for the occupants.

Medium-High Density Residential: K2 Apartments

The high profile, award winning K2 Apartments in Windsor, in Melbourne's inner south east, remain a benchmark for medium density residential design and construction. DesignInc Melbourne has utilised the northern aspect of the site to take advantage of the natural elements with passive design principles. Buildings are oriented and arranged so each has sufficient exposure to the northern sun during winter, and smart shading to minimise the effect of radiant heat during summer.
