Site Tour: Key Worker Housing Bowden

Take a tour with the project team behind a visionary development which provides Green Star-rated housing that is easy on the environment and the resident’s pocket.

A vision of Unity Housing and BuildTec, this development offers priority access to affordable housing for essential services workers – such as emergency services personal, teachers and nurses – close to the community they work in. This helps to alleviate the impacts of urban sprawl and is part of a greater vision for Bowden to become a vibrant and well-serviced community.

This 26 home development also prioritises the health and wellbeing of these residents. Achieving a 5 Star Green Star – Design rating, each home offers ample natural light, large overhangs and a healthy airflow centred around an open air communal space.

Other sustainability features include;

  • Recycled water line reticulated to all toilets and clothes washers
  • Large portion of structure constructed from precast concrete
  • Remedial steps taken to decontaminate land before construction
  • Improvement to the ecological value of the site
