In July 2017 Shoreline at North Coogee became the largest mixed-use development in Western Australia to achieve UDIA EnviroDevelopment Certification.
EnviroDevelopment is a scientifically-based assessment scheme that independently reviews development projects and awards certification to those that achieve outstanding performance across four or more of the provided elements, or leaves - Ecosystems, Waste, Energy, Materials, Water and Community.
EnviroDevelopment accreditation allows purchasers to recognise and, thereby select more environmentally sustainable developments.
LandCorp has achieved five of the six leaves for Shoreline's EnviroDevelopment certification – Ecosystem, Waste, Energy, Water and Community - marking the development as an outstanding sustainable project.
Just some of the elements that helped achieve the accreditation include:
Comprehensive remediation across the site.
Planting of local native vegetation.
Landscaping focused on street tree environment and vegetated public open space.
Proactive waste minimisation and requirement for developers to recycle or reuse a minimum of 60% of all built-form construction waste.
Solar passive design and natural ventilation encouraged by design.
Encouragement to install solar energy and hot water heating.
Energy efficient fixtures, appliances and lighting.
All apartments submetered and required to be built to a 7-star NatHERS rating.
Waterwise fixtures and appliances such as toilets, taps, washing machines and dishwashers to reduce water use by at least 20 per cent.
All apartments submetered to allow residents to monitor individual consumption.
Waterwise native gardens and landscaping in public open spaces with hydrozoning to maintain efficient irrigation.
Design focus on walking, cycling and access to public transport to reduce reliance on private vehicles.
Diversity of housing and commercial options with medium and high density residential, retail, restaurants, schools and tourism.
High quality streetscape, public and open spaces and direct walking access to beach.
Universally accessible spaces and options for living.
