How is Tooltime connected with sustainable living?

Firstly, Tooltime not only has a passion for the building industry but also for the challenge of innovative design and construction of energy efficient and environmentally sensitive structures. To stay at the forefront of our field our team is constantly researching new products and techniques to help reduce our impact on the environment while not having to compromise luxury and comfort.

We practice what we preach: a recent superior build of a state of the art 3 storey offices in O'Connor featuring clever design and innovative use of materials has created the most luxurious environment while displaying an amazing use of technology and sustainability. For example, our use of LED lighting throughout reduces lighting power consumption by 75%.

Walking the Walk

A roof top Aquaponics System that supplies fresh fruit and vegetables as well as Barramundi fish every 4 to 5 months. (Aquaponics is the growing of fish and vegetables in a symbiotic system. They both rely on one another for food and cannot survive without each other). There are 32 solar panels that not only help lower the power bill but also offset energy consumption. A circulating hot water system saves wasting water while waiting for the water to heat up. Our eco energy efficient glazing to the front fa├žade of our building provides substantial amounts of natural light to every office while keeping the summer heat out.

We invite you to discover more about us, see a sample of some of our building projects and contact us for any building project on your horizon. We believe in what we do, our people and take a great deal of pride in what and the way we build.
