Smart Homes on a Green Estate

Blythedale Coastal Estate was conceptualised with the future in mind. The intention is to provide viable technologies in the market that take advantage of reduced reliance on public utilities or services. Reliance will be greatly reduced on the following: Municipal water supply, energy supply via the National Grid and waste disposal to landfill.

Various integrated concepts have been analysed and developed.

These different integrated concepts encompass potable water systems, wastewater treatment, energy supply and waste management. This offers great potential for sustainable development as it relates to Bulk Service Infrastructure and Building Guidelines for houses and resorts.
