Today I am excited to share with you the latest update on ecokit development!
Since January, we have focused on finalizing the engineering of the kit – and we have just completed the first phase. Now we are focusing on the additional wind loads, to be able to offer ecokit to those who plan building their new home in areas with strong winds or even a possibility of cyclone.
For the next couple of months we have two major sub-systems to develop – the plumbing & drainage and also the electrical system.
Those systems are being designed to fit into our modular system and will be packed with intelligent and energy-efficient technology. They will be partly pre-fabricated and designed to be easily integrated within the modular home.
Ecokit forms the ‘engine room’ of the house along the south facing wall, delivering plumbing & drainage system for the kitchen and the the bathroom, providing a sink, washing machine, shower/bath, toilet and vanity basin couplings.
The electrical system is still under research with an innovative australian product in mind so watch this space!
While our engineers are hard at work polishing every last detail of the ecokit home, I have decided to address a topic that is being repeatedly questioned in your emails – is ecokit build on passive solar design? Or is ecokit a passive house? You can read my answers here.
Thank you for your continued support!
Camilla & the team at ecokit
