Lochiel Park exemplifies South Australia’s Strategic Plan environmental targets to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions and begin preparing our economy and society for climate change and a carbon constrained world.
In addition to water, energy and waste reduction, all homes at Lochiel Park have access to a high speed fibre-optic network.
The Zero Carbon Challenge was run by Renewal SA in partnership with the Integrated Design Commission SA. It was designed to challenge the development industry to aim for zero carbon emissions while offering a glimpse into the future of housing in South Australia.
The Zero Carbon Home was built at Lochiel Park in 2013, was open to the public through to October 2013, and is now a private home.
