Innovation and agility deliver new solutions to old challenges


Innovation and agility are easy to speak of but actually require careful and persistent nurturing to bring to life.

Breezes Muirhead – NT

Challenge:

A joint venture with Defence Housing Australia, an innovative approach was required to improve liveability and reduce home cooling costs.

Solution & Outcome:

1. AVID presented an historic and innovative approach to the Breezes Muirhead masterplan by focusing on solar aspect, allotment orientation and building separation to capture cooling breezes.

2. AVID worked closely with its joint venture partner, instilling new-found innovation and agility across their organisation to bring the ‘Breezeway Model’ vision to life.

Tempo - QLD

Challenge:

Initially committed to commercial development and subsequently deemed unviable, AVID was to identify a better opportunity for an innovative residential product never seen before in the area, while overcoming the challenges of changing planning consent with the local council.

Solution & Outcome:

1. AVID identified a niche market for a small lot house and land product not previously available to first home buyers and investors in the area.

2. AVID worked in partnership with Ipswich Council to influence and gain approval for amends to the development consent, presenting long-term benefits for the growth of the region. As a result, AVID’s model has been adopted throughout the growth corridor.

3. Working with a highly respected specialist residential designer, AVID provided a cutting edge turn-key product, a first in maximising the floorspace to lot ratio with integrated outdoor space for those seeking affordable and efficient living.

Argyle – NSW

Challenge:

Individual parcels of land controlled by AVID and AVJennings were intertwined presenting significant constraints to either party developing the land.

Solution & Outcome:

1. Collaborate into a joint venture relationship to develop the land co-jointly and secure the necessary planning outcomes required by Council.

2. A link road was developed to Liz Kernahan Drive to complete the bus route and transport corridor.

3. Delivering over 3.5 hectares of open space featuring a significant riparian corridor and public parks for residents to enjoy.

Duo - VIC

Challenge:

With approximately 70 percent of Casey Cardinia residents working outside the region, and many travelling by car, AVID had to address the issue of convenience and sustainability, whilst making the project economically and environmentally viable.

Solution & Outcome:

1. AVID worked diligently with the City of Casey to rezone 10ha of Mixed Use Zoning on the Greenfield Site for the Duo initiative.

2. AVID believes that Duo is ground breaking and first to market to provide a great solution taking inspiration from Melbourne’s heritage by taking the ‘shop-top’ retail and home set up from the CBD into the suburbs.

3. Workspaces were designed to accommodate a broader range of uses and additional employees. Each property has an exclusive business entry, separate from your home, solving the problem of work disrupting personal life.
