Creating sustainable greenspaces for communities.
As natural disasters wreak havoc across our nation, destroying flora, fauna, communities and community spirit, it’s no surprise that climate change action is at the forefront for consumers and corporations.
With the Federal Government’s announcement of net-zero carbon by 2050, progressive designers, planners, builders and developers are taking action. To create healthier, sustainable and prosperous communities, we need to look beyond energy efficiency and assess our master-planned communities and supply chains as a whole.
“Every developer has an inherent opportunity to provide sustainable solutions that are market responsive and set the standard for sustainable, master-planned communities.” said Ben Urban, Managing Director of Urban Play.
By using recycled and recyclable materials throughout the whole community, even greenspaces, developers are not only adhering to green star ratings and sustainable design initiatives, they are also responding to increasing legislative demands and enhancing their suitability to prospective buyers.
“For over 17 years, we have worked hand-in-hand with developers throughout QLD to create play and fitness spaces that have become buzzing hubs for their communities and distinguished their development from competitors. And now, we are excited to offer circular sustainable playground solutions.” Said Mr Urban.
A recent sustainable innovation from their globally leading partner, KOMPAN, has seen post-consumer recycled materials such as ocean waste, used textiles, food packaging waste and used plastic bags replacing raw materials in their products. KOMPAN’s new Made Green products use materials that have lived their intended life and are now being recycled to live a new life.
“Not only does this offer lower-carbon emission solutions for developers and communities, but there is also now the opportunity to build an entire playground out of products made from recycled materials” said Mr. Urban.
