Melbourne Rain Garden Competition
Raingardens are self-watering, low-maintenance gardens designed to protect our rivers and creeks, by capturing stormwater that runs off hard surfaces when it rains.
One of the many benefits of a rain garden an environment for children catching tadpoles in a sediment-water collection point.
In 2011, Calm Living Homes won the Melbourne Water RainGarden Competition for the stormwater system our company designed for Machu Picchu.
“The home’s stormwater system won the Melbourne Water Rain Garden Competition, and the greywater system will treat wastewater to such a high standard it will join the stormwater.” – Ultralast News 10/05/2011
CPD – 5 Star Sustainability Excellence Award
The CPD Awards,
The awards are designed to recognise and encourage training and professional development within the building industry. They identify RBPs who, by participating in training and development, are exemplars in developing their own skills and knowledge, and consequently make a contribution to the building industry as a whole.
This prestigious award is handed out to registered building practitioners in any registration category, who have undertaken green training and applied the sustainability principles to their own workplace in the past 12 months.
Anton is passionate about caring for the planet and green building, and recently completed a Certificate IV in Building and Design (Environment Management).
