HOW WE BUILD HEALTHY, ENERGY EFFICIENT & SUSTAINABLE HOMES

Central Coast Building Team - Lou Projects

OUR APPROACH

what we do

Lou Projects is a sustainable building company on the Central Coast, NSW. Our focus is to build healthy, energy efficient and sustainable homes, at an affordable price. We also want to make the building process easier for everyone involved, particularly the homeowner. We do this by working closely with our designers, engineers and suppliers to ensure a smooth build from start to finish.

We believe in building homes that are not only beautiful, comfortable, and enjoyable to live in, but also save money, water and energy. This means we build high quality homes that are energy efficient and sustainably made with the best materials available. We work with clients who, like us, believe in creating a connection to nature, family and friends through their home.

We have a relentless desire to improve the building industry as a whole, so we can all live in healthy homes for ourselves and our planet.  

our principles

INNOVATIVE DESIGN

Design is key. This is why we work with architects and engineers who share our values to create beautiful, functional and energy efficient homes. We look closely at the natural environment of the home and how that affects things like heating, cooling, lighting and water demands. We love to teach our clients about all the options they have and provide support in the design process to ensure they build a sustainable home with a budget they can afford.

CONSCIOUS BUILDING PRACTICES

We hold ourselves to a much higher standard than the current standards in the Australian building industry. We use high quality products and best practice techniques to result in a weather-tight home; meaning a naturally regulated temperature inside the home, no moisture issues and more importantly no mould. The result? Comfortable, energy efficient homes that save you money, are better for your health and the planet too.

SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

We select materials with care and this includes everything from the foundations of the home to the final finishing touches. We use efficient, long-lasting and renewable materials. We also consider how the materials are made and packaged to ensure a completely sustainable product. We’re constantly educating ourselves and searching for options to ensure we build more energy efficient, sustainable homes, using the best materials available.

MINIMAL WASTE

During the building process itself, we consider the environmental impact of the materials we use and how we manage waste onsite. We source local and sustainable materials as much as possible. We pride ourselves on keeping our worksites clean and tidy throughout the entire build. We ensure waste is minimised and everything else is reused or recycled.

We design and build homes that are healthy and energy efficient, using innovative designs, sustainable materials and conscious building practices.
