Brisbane Custom Home Builder Integral to Environmentally Friendly Home Renovation


QUEENSLAND, Australia October, 2012 – With the dreaded carbon tax skyrocketing electricity bills and increasing awareness of the need to protect the environment and opt for environmentally friendly alternatives, it’s no wonder Aussie home owners are asking for environmentally friendly features in new homes and home renovations. With large building and construction companies slow to make change, it might be left to smaller, custom home builders to lead the charge for environmentally friendly homes.

One Brisbane custom home builder is doing exactly that, having recently installed a water harvesting system into a house structure. Giovanni Silanesu, a qualified home builder, is well-known for his involvement in high profile projects such as the Victoria Park Golf Course redevelopment. But one of his most recent projects has made him the talk of the environmentally friendly part of town, as he was instrumental in the environmentally friendly home renovation of a beloved ‘Queenslander’ where environmentally friendly features were integrated into various elements of the design and build such as a water harvesting system including a 20,000L tank fixed into the structure of the house.

Nick Heath of Kelvin Grove, owner of Gio’s latest environmentally friendly home renovation says, “Gio, owner of Inspired Constructions, Pools & Landscaping was engaged to build our extension/renovation. After almost two years of frustration at being stuck in the design process, it was refreshing to find a person whose drive and passion for our vision, and excellent organisational skills, ensured that this difficult project was completed in just eight months, including Christmas break.”

“I was amazed at the finish of the house. Looking at what it was, run-down and dilapidated, I never imaged it to be transformed into what it now is. Gio and his team not only kept the original structure and character of the house intact, but he incorporated a contemporary and fresh look. We continually saw changes to our house and knew we had done the right thing by keeping the original structure.”

When Nick received a budget estimate, he was pleasantly surprised at its level of detail, above the level normally required for a custom home renovation. All costing was transparent and detailed, without any hidden extras, so Nick was able to confidently make a comparison of prices.

Nick says he is very pleased with the environmentally sympathetic planning that was at the heart of Gio’s recommendations, “We also wanted to keep a substantially large part of the block as natural bushland. This area was unharmed throughout the renovation. In fact a thriving group of Bush turkeys have remained throughout the entire building process ... Gio, I wish I had met you two years earlier.”

Gio, an acclaimed author of the ‘Construction Process Bible’ is committed to making the building process transparent and shift perceptions of the building industry through professional dealings and quality workmanship.
