Shared cars, scooter parks and bicycle racks
There will be two communal cars for exclusive use by Daisy residents. This will give residents the convenience of a car when they need one, without the cost and hassle of owning their own. This car sharing system will also have significant environmental benefits, by reducing the carbon footprint of Daisy residents.
Daisy also has a secure basement with parking for scooters and bicycles.
Daisy represents a total commitment to best practice, sustainable, low energy urban living. In association with the NZ Green Building Council we have designed Daisy to achieve a 9 Homestar rating.* This will make Daisy the highest rated green apartment building in New Zealand. Daisy’s green features include:
- Photo voltaic solar farm on the roof for on-site power generation powering common area lighting, lifts, and centralised water heating plant.
- A centralised water heating plant that uses the latest German Bosch heat pump technology for maximum efficiency.
- Zehnder heat recovery ventilation systems to provide a warm, healthy building with low energy usage.
- Two communal cars for exclusive use by residents, lowering the overall transport costs and CO2 emissions for Daisy residents.
- Highly energy efficient electrical appliances, fixtures and systems targeting low, long-term operational costs.
- Rainwater harvesting system with basement storage tanks for reuse on-site.
- External blind systems and low E argon filled double glazing to manage solar gain.
- Communal vegetable plantings and fruit trees on adjacent reserve managed by the Body Corporate.
- Extensive on-site scooter and bicycle parking in basement via dedicated scooter lift accessed from street level.
- Low formaldehyde/formaldehyde-free MDF used in all cabinetry.
