Ponsford....Building a Greener Future

Sustainable power use has been designed to achieve energy ratings of up to 9.5 stars.

Each apartment has been designed to take advantage of cross ventilation and natural light, therefore reducing the need for continual use and consumption of your apartment’s air-conditioning and lighting. We use high quality insulation resulting in sound-proofed apartments that are cooler in summer and warmer in winter. Over 80% of our entire lighting system utilises energy efficient products.

Water is collected from all roofs and is used for gardening and landscaping. Most gardens feature drought-resistant plant varieties. The hot water heating systems are star-rated, so you'll enjoy substantial energy savings. All tapware is rated for water efficiency to save you both water and money.

Contemporary, not Commonplace

Ponsford create homes that are distinctively modern in style.

Each project is architecturally designed, using state-of-the-art engineered designs. Application of the latest design trends offers a special feeling of distinction. Individual floor plans allow us to offer greater flexibility and more choices than our competitors, ensuring that your home is customised to best suit your specific lifestyle needs.  No project is visually the same, so you won't see your home duplicated in the next street or suburb!

Our work represents the highest standard of quality craftsmanship in contemporary building developments. Committed to excellence in our profession, we are active members of the Urban Development Institute of Australia and the Queensland Master Builders Association.
