We place sustainability features into every Finbar development to save energy and reduce our carbon footprint.
Sustainability measures we have featured within certain developments include:
Central heat pump
Traditional electric storage hot water systems are not overly efficient. Installing a central heat pump hot water system can reduce operating costs and greenhouse gas emissions by 65% or more.
Responsible waste collection and disposal is a major consideration for apartment developments. To reduce rubbish (and future landfill) space by up to 65%, our high-rise properties feature a mechanical bin compaction unit that works in tandem with a waste chute system.
In some developments, double-glazed glass possesses excellent thermal properties that reduce the need for excessive heating and cooling.
Taking cars off the road
Our residents naturally have a reduced carbon footprint. This is because most of our developments feature attractive end-of-trip facilities (including bicycle parking) and are situated in the inner city, giving residents great alternatives to transportation by car. These include:
- The ability to walk to most amenities (and possibly their place of work)
inner city public transport.
