Innovative Catalogue To Showcase Housing Choice In Karratha

Victor P Taffa

People looking to build a house at Karratha’s Baynton West estate will, for the first time, have a range of affordable housing choices at their fingertips, thanks to a new catalogue.

The Baynton West Builders’ Showcase catalogue features a number of innovative housing products from 19 builders participating in the area’s Pilbara Display Village.

Prices start at $338,000 for a four-bedroom, two-bathroom home in the LandCorp development.

Lands Minister Brendon Grylls said the initiative, a first for the Pilbara, was about promoting affordable and climate-responsive design and, most importantly, showing the increased housing choices now available in the region.

“A major goal of the State Government’s ‘Pilbara Cities’ initiative is to attract more builders and introduce more housing styles and choices in the Region.” Mr. Grylls said.

“The catalogue clearly shows we have delivered on this promise.”

“Buyers looking to build their new home at Baynton West can go to the LandCorp website and download the catalogue to view a variety of housing styles and specifications designed for different tastes and budgets.”

“A selection of the designs featured in the catalogue will soon be on show at the Pilbara Display Village where people can walk through homes and determine design aspects to suit their building needs.” Mr. Grylls said.

The Minister said construction of the display village was under way with completion expected in mid-2011.

North West MLA Vince Catania said the Pilbara Display Village brought together builders from across the State, generating greater choice of competitive options.

Mr. Catania said the State Government was committed to attracting more builders to the region as well as supporting established local builders, to deliver affordable housing options, specifically designed for the Pilbara climate.

In particular, builders were being encouraged to offer homes with a high energy rating, water efficient appliances and look at ways of utilising water re-use.
