A Green Neighbourhood

It is an investment in future generations, and as a Newinbosch resident, you play a key part in it. Newinbosch is being enrolled for four prominent green building certifications through the GBCSA (Green Building Council of South Africa):

Other innovative solutions that will drive efficient use of natural resources and reduce our carbon footprint are:

  • New-generation waste management
  • Cost-saving energy efficiencies informing all design considerations
  • Green infrastructure
  • Not-for-profit urban farm
  • Restoration of local fauna & flora habitats

Net Zero Ecology

Net Zero Certification is awarded to projects that go beyond the partial reductions recognized in the current GBCSA tools.

At Newinbosch the ecological value of the site post-development will be improved. It has committed to not only minimizing the effect on the site but also enhancing the biodiversity, habitat and quality of the green spaces. Only indigenous plants and trees will be planted in parks and green spaces, thus making the landscaping waterwise while encouraging the establishment of new ecosystems where an abundance of fauna and flora can thrive.

Edge

EDGE (Excellence in Design for Greater Efficiencies) offers a measurable way to cut back on the resource intensity of buildings.

It is about all the materials used and how the home is put together. Similan was the first developer in Africa to receive EDGE certification for a residential development in 2017 and Newinbosch is a flagship development for their EDGE application. All homes at Newinbosch will be EDGE certified. EDGE-certified homes feature several cost-saving benefits for homeowners. Major South African banks are offering reduced interest rates for certified green homes. Not only does EDGE certification reduce bond costs, but homeowners will save up to 40% on energy and water bills.

The spaces between the homes of Newinbosch are equally important in the neighbourhood’s design for sustainable living. The Sustainable Precincts tool plays a pivotal role in evaluating large-scale developments, compelling developers to prioritize thoughtful design, community integration, and environmental well-being.

Newinbosch was meticulously crafted to introduce a Live-Work-Play ethos that enriches residents’ quality of life. All necessary community amenities will be easily accessible. The layout places pedestrians at the centre, featuring interconnected walkways and cycling routes.
