In late 2015 multi award winning home builder Peter Edmonds and Jim Preece established Buildwise Solutions in Western Australia to build sustainable Homes, Granny Flats, ManCaves, Executive Homes and Extensions that would achieve Energy ratings significantly above those of conventional and alternative building products. For too long the WA residential market has relied almost solely on brick and tile construction with which it is almost impossible to achieve more than the statutory minimum Energy rating of 6 stars. Peter and Jim chose to use the Bondor InsulLiving® and SolarSpan® systems and products exclusively to meet the market desire for sustainable and high Energy rated homes.
A Queensland builder built a 273m2 home using these revolutionary products and system which was assessed on the plans to deserve an 8 star Energy rating. An independent review of the home after twelve month’s occupation by a family of four delivered outstanding results:
- Electricity cost for the year of $160 or 44 cents per day was 48 % lower than the average South-East Queensland home
- A very high thermal comfort level for 87% of the year
- Net zero energy for space heating, cooling, lighting most water heating with renewable solar energy
There was no doubt this was the product for WA!! But the Bondor InsulLiving® and SolarSpan® systems and products offer much more than sustainability and high Energy ratings. They provide:
- much faster build times than traditional building methods. For example a 305m2 Bondor home can be completed within 91 working days of the contract being signed
- the Smart InsulWall® walling system replaces frames, brick, plasterboard and insulation
- the Smart SolarSpan® and InsulRoof® roofing systems replacing trusses, roof sheets, ceiling and insulation
- a complete thermally efficient shell
- full compliance with the Building Code of Australia
- fully reusable, recyclable and non-toxic building materials
- fire safety rating up to BAL 40

EXECUTIVE HOMES, GRANNY FLATS, TINY HOMES, MANCAVES AND EXTENSIONS
Buildwise Solutions will design and build one of these to suit your requirements and enhance your lifestyle using the InsulLiving® range of products manufactured in Western Australia by Bondor.
When adding other buildings to your existing property it’s important that those buildings complement rather than clash with your home and therefore add value to the whole property. Buildwise Solutions will ensure that this outcome is realised for you with its extensive range of exterior finishes.
We understand that not everyone requires a home built using the InsulLiving system and products. Buildwise Solutions can build your new home, tiny home, mancave or extension in brick and tile/iron and would be please to discuss it with you. Many of the designs included on this website can be constructed using either InsulLiving products or brick and tile/iron.
