Alkimos Beach launches new Display Village
On Saturday 8 April, Alkimos Beach hosted more than 1000 people at the estates display village grand opening to celebrate the launch of the community’s newest display homes by some of WA’s best and most innovative builders.
Four of the new displays at Alkimos Beach have been given a 7-star energy efficiency rating through the Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme (NatHERS), with the remainder all achieving a minimum 6-star rating.
This launch also celebrated the official opening of the new Alkimos Beach Sales and Information Centre, featuring a picturesque roof top viewing deck overlooking the Indian Ocean. Visitors had the opportunity to explore the community with complimentary tram tours.
General Manager of Communities WA, Anthony Rowbottam said the launch was a fantastic opportunity for visitors to see for themselves what it looks like to live at Alkimos Beach.
“The display village grand opening was the perfect opportunity to introduce visitors to our vibrant coastal community which we are so proud of,” he said. There were plenty of fun activities for everyone, including a pirate ship jumping castle, smoothie pedal bikes and a variety of wildlife displays. The community hosted a series of fun and informative workshops, including a presentation from The Garden Gurus’ Chris Ferreira on how to grow your own food and tips on how to build a sustainable home from WA’s well-recognised sustainability expert, David Beyer. The winner of the Alkimos Beach Display Village Launch Competition was also announced. Eddie has won a $500 voucher to Lakeside Joondalup Shopping Centre.
LandCorp chief operations officer Dean Mudford said “The community vision is for Alkimos Beach to work towards becoming a carbon neutral community. The display village showcasing sustainable building designs and practices is an important aspect in implementing this vision through educating prospective buyers on how to live more sustainably by minimising their energy and water consumption. This in turn strengthens the community’s resilience into the future.”
