Exceptional Architecture

AlmaVerde's unique building specification offers the following top ten major benefits when compared with other developments.

 

  • High levels of thermal mass and insulation improve thermal comfort and reduce energy costs  
  • Adobe (sun dried clay) inner walls help to regulate humidity and reduce the risk of condensation  
  • Solid interior walls provide superior sound insulation  
  • Vapour-permeable walls and roofs assist with humidity control and contribute to health
  • External insulation eliminates risk of cold bridging across concrete frame  
  • External render system does not crack and, being self-coloured, does not require frequent repainting
  • Impermeable membranes and damp courses provide superior protection from rain and damp incursion  
  • High-quality timber laminated double-glazed units assist with thermal and sound insulation, security, ventilation and control of solar gains  
  • Coolhouse system provides summer cooling at low energy cost, as well as controlled fresh air in winter  
  • Underfloor heating powered by an air/water heat exchanger minimises winter heating cost and offers some reverse cycle summer cooling; solar thermal panels provide domestic water heating virtually cost free
     

In addition, superior quality fittings and finishes enhance the value of your investment, including:

 

  •  Custom designed timber balustrades  
  •  Beech finish interior doors and wardrobe units  
  •  High-quality bathroom fittings  
  •  Granite kitchen worktops and splashbacks  
  •  Zanussi kitchen appliances
  •  Pebble pools
