Bellbird Park gets 6 leaves
AVID Property Group received EnviroDevelopment Certificates for a number of projects this week including Brentwood Forest at Bellbird Park.
Brentwood Forest achieved the highest 6 ‘Leaf’ EnviroDevelopment certification from the UDIA.
A significant achievement for the emerging Greater Springfield community, Brentwood Forest has achieved accreditation across all six elements, which recognises outstanding design and planning across the elements of ecosystems, waste, energy, materials, water and community.
AVID CEO Cameron Holt said AVID was delighted to receive recognition for Brentwood Forest’s sustainable and environmental design.
“We are proud Brentwood Forest has achieved an EnviroDevelopment certification across all six ‘leaves’ as it highlights our approach to delivering a masterplanned community that incorporates best practice environmental and sustainability measures,” Mr Holt said.
“AVID’s carefully planned approach to sustainability includes retaining trees and preserving local flora and fauna across more than 34 hectares of open space, as well as revegetating areas with local native plants.
“Storm water is purified onsite before being slowly released into Woogaroo Creek and long-term plans are in place for weed removal and the rehabilitation of existing eroded gullies and waterways.
“In Queensland, we are leading the way when it comes to sustainability. AVID’s Harmony development on the Sunshine Coast achieved a South-East Queensland first last year, receiving accreditation across all six leaves within months of its official launch.
“Nationally, AVID is setting new property industry benchmarks, becoming the first developer in Australia to achieve EnviroDevelopment certifications across all of its live projects.”
Institute CEO Marina Vit congratulated AVID on receiving EnviroDevelopment certification for Brentwood Forest.
“It is a significant achievement for a project to achieve all six elements and is a great example of developers and industry working together to create a sustainable community,” Ms Vit said.
“This not only benefits the environment in the long term, but it benefits the current and future residents as well.”
