Batacara was built with the Passive House principles of airtight construction, excellent thermal insulation, high performing Argon filled double glazing, minimising thermal bridges and a heat recovery ventilation system. These deliver another level of comfort that does not exist in the current townhouse market and have achieved an average EER of 7.3. By incorporating Passive House Principles into the build, the homes will perform better than the EER suggests.

The homes are solar ready.

Each home has reverse cycle air-conditioning and a heat recovery ventilation system (HRV) which has low running costs. The HRV filters fresh air and keeps out smoke, dust and other contaminants. Incoming air passes through the HRV’s heat exchanger which is then heated by the outgoing air. This keeps a consistent temperature inside the home with minimal heating and cooling required.


Batacara is named after one of the fossils (a Trilobite) unearthed during construction.
