To launch the new Estate, a ribbon cutting ceremony will held between 11am & Noon on Saturday the 6th September Chaucer st Lenah Valley ( Off Alwyn st )

Executive Director of the Housing Industry Association Mr Rick Sassin 0407 596 704 will say a few words and introduce the Mayor, Damon Thomas. to cut the ribbon. Rick will speak on the many current positives in Tasmanian Construction.


Tasmanian Based, National Development Manager of the Independent Builders Network, John Harris will also say a few words about the importance of using Licenced, accredited and insured builders and will promote the InsulLiving product featuring the proven 9.5 star living system.


In the future people will look at their suburb and wonder why it isn’t built with the proven and reliable Bondor system in park-like settings with a REAL neighborhood feel.

Over the years new housing estates have had little thought for solar orientation, privacy, noise control and the mix of new owners. This is the first time in 50+ years that a planned estate of this type and size has been developed. NO Government handouts here either, this is the vision of 2 men, their wives and their team over a 4 year period, working with the local community to get it right. Less traffic, greater planning of play areas and the creation of a safe and liveable suburb. As well, new proven materials are encouraged and one is InsulLiving from Bondor. With 60 years of development and research giving amazing results, this product will be on show at the launch.

The first InsulLiving house in Launceston has saved the owner $500 per quarter. If all new homes in Tassie were built from this material we could subsidise another EZ !  Given most states of Australia are still implementing 6 star homes, this means Tasmanians can now build maximum comfort with fully trained teams of specialist builders and unique Tasmanian designs.

The opportunity for people to live this close to Hobart heralds a new era in commuting with energy aware and environmentally savvy home builders. Why would anyone plan to use more power, to burn more wood or to have 145 Heat pumps going flat out at night to provide comfort? Those days are gone and ignorance is no longer an option.

Developer’s Chris & Roger ( SA residents )  says “We wanted to create an Estate that would fit in with the unique location in Lenah Valley and create a place where people can call home. Small block sizes in many others areas mean you can hear the neighbour’s toilet flush. Materials like double glazing with Argon gas and superior noise attenuation from InsulLiving mean that people will walk into their homes and experience peace…we are so proud to have invested the time and money to create this suburb of the future …now. We hope everyone planning a new energy efficient home for their families or their retirement will visit and enjoy the hospitality on the day and into the coming months as these sought after blocks go to market.”

Building energy efficient homes across all of Tasmania and built to the high standard that Bondor are renowned for requires dedicated, determined and motivated builders. IBN is Australia’s fastest growing group of Builders. CEO of IBN Mr Kevin Renwick OAM puts it this way “ we have been building for 40+ years and now have 130 + builder members in 5 states of Australia. Consumers and our members WANT and need cutting edge building materials and I have personally travelled the world to compare. I believe the Bondor InsulLiving system WILL capture 5% of new homes in Tasmania very quickly….So our members are stepping up to the crease”
