A Living Key report provides a thorough assessment and rating of the entire property in relation to the land, buildings and fitout and the surrounding neighbourhood, either at the design stage or as-built. ; It will provide an information based report which describes the results, attributes, areas for improvement, and the social/community environmental and financial/economic benefits, in an easy to understand language.
In addition Living Key can provide a complete assessment and report at a price point that is financially accessible to individual home-owners and small medium developers.
The strength of Living Key is the manner in which it rates, displays and describes the performance achievement of properties. It is a valuable tool for property owners, residents, selling and renting agents, as well as builders and property developers who who may find it difficult to demonstrate or describe the sustainability feature) or who may not have a methodology to benchmark a property’s performance.
