It was time to celebrate for many involved in the building of the Goulburn Valley’s first 8 Star Energy Rated home.

Building new homes these days is all about a combination of energy efficiency, comfort, and practicality.

Two years of planning came to fruition last Saturday when locally based Sessions Builders officially opened Shepparton’s newest display home, Verde which is a major fund raiser for GV Health, with proceeds going directly to the GV Health Foundation Oncology Ward.

Sessions Builders director, Tim Session said he hoped the charity home would raise a considerable amount for the important oncology ward.

He also took the opportunity to thank 60 suppliers, tradespeople, and organisations associated with the special project. “We couldn’t do it without them and the support was extraordinary,” Tim said.

Chairman of Kavant Nominees, the Kialla Lakes Estate developers, Lance Woodhouse cut the ribbon at the opening, Chairman of GV Health Foundation, Ross McPherson, was in attendance, along with Kavant Nominees director, Graham Hofmeyer, who thanked everyone who was involved in the special project. Co-ordinator of the major project, Bethanie Hemeter received praise for her tireless work and also thanked all businesses involved.

For a closer inspection of this 8 Star Energy Rated home, you can visit Verde, located at 82 Sanctuary Drive, Kialla Lakes, Kialla. It is open Mon, Thur, Fri 1 – 5 pm, Tues & Wed by appointment and Sat & Sun 12 noon to 5 pm.
