Innovative building methods
Knowledge is power, so we're putting you in the driving seat and offering you three construction methods to choose from. Each method will mean something different to you, your home and your block.
As part of Summit Homes Group's dedication to quality and innovation, we work closely with industry leaders who set the benchmarks for energy efficiencies and best practice in construction. We proudly maintain the highest level of industry compliance we can on every build we complete.
1. Brick veneer
This method of build is a combination of brickwork and steel-framing, creating energy efficiencies during the build as well as when you're living in your new home. Brick veneer homes provide better insulation, keeping you warmer in the winter and cool in WA's sweltering summers. Another plus is brick veneer homes offer the best results in regards to sound-proofing your ears to noise pollution. So if the neighbour's having a big one, you won't need to hear every last detail. With New Generation Homes, building with the brick veneer method also saves you money; and that's everyone's favourite efficiency.
2. Double brick building method
This method of building is more commonly implemented in Western Australia and has its pros and cons as do all of the methods. Double brick homes offer great acoustic properties, which means your home has a reduction of the noise pollution. The Estimated Sound Reduction Index measures how much sound a structure blocks – the higher the rating, the better the sound reduction properties. You can see a more detailed report on how this building method stacks up on our Building Construction Methods Brochure below.
3. Fully Framed Steel
Fully framed homes, or as we like to think of it, the way of the future, shares the above pros and then some. A commitment to quality is part of the Summit Homes Group promise and that's why New Generation Homes use TRUECORE® Steel, a leader in strength, fire-resistance, durability and much more. Building a fully-framed home means energy efficiencies during and after your build and Summit Homes has a steel factory on-site so expediate your building process.
