Leading eco-friendly building company Ecoliv is creating more jobs and opportunities in the Bass Coast thanks to a new sustainable living and off-grid project supported by the Andrews Labor Government.
Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Victoria Danielle Green visited Ecoliv’s site The Gurdies to announce the new sustainable living and off-grid project.
The sustainable project will deliver 14 new jobs to the community and is funded through the Labor Government’s Regional Jobs Fund.
The project will include the construction facility, administration office and staff amenities as well as a display home for Ecoliv’s carbon neutral range of EcoGeneration modular design homes. The project will be powered by A 10-kilowatt off-grid solar power plant.
The $1.58 million project will double Ecoliv’s production of sustainable modular buildings, while the new display home will showcase the latest technologies for a sustainable approach to living. The display home will enable people to view water, energy and waste reduction systems in action.
Ecoliv is a prefabricated modular building construction company and the first modular builder to introduce a 7-star energy rating to its homes.
The company incorporates sustainable practices to its operations and designs, which are constructed locally on-site at its current facility in The Gurdies before being transported and assembled at a final location.
The Regional Jobs Fund is part of the Government’s flagship Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund. The Fund is central to the Government’s record investment of more than $36 billion across regional and rural Victoria since 2015.
