More than words…

Home Option Gallery, as part of our commitment to providing products and services of the highest quality to our clients, has taken many steps towards improving the sustainability of our activities.

Environmental considerations have resulted in a number of tangible outcomes at Home Option Gallery. These activities have benefited not only our own business but also our suppliers and clients.

EnvironmentalAccording to Home Option Gallery general manager, Alan Phillips, the Gallery makes green choices consciously on a daily basis. “For example, our showcase magazine you are reading now has been printed on PEFC* Certified plantation-based paper using vegetable inks,’ said Alan.

“The Gallery has also participated in an independent audit to provide us with further insights of the costs versus savings generated from taking action to improve our sustainability.”

“We have taken steps to upgrade our lighting, to turn-off appliances and machinery previously left on standby and to install a rain water tank to supply recycled water to our showroom toilets and garden taps,” said Alan. “We have also installed a 1kW solar electrical system and incorporated a water-wise garden watering system and water efficient plants into our outdoor display.”

“In our kitchen showroom display alone we have replaced the lighting to more energy efficient halogens so that our initial outlay was paid back after only 11 months.”

Home Option Gallery has received a number of accolades for our environmental sustainability. We were nominated by the NSW Department of Environment & Climate Change (DECCA) for a 2009 Green Globe Award, and we are proud winners of the Energy Efficiency and Home & Garden Trade categories of the 2009 Business Achiever Awards presented by the Hills Shire Times.

Home Option Gallery is a unique centre providing a full range of home-building related services including colour selections, in-house water board and finance approvals, as well as quality pool, blind and awning quotations. Our clients rate us highly for our expertise and one-stop shop approach, and value the relationship they form with their appointed design consultant.

Our showroom provides a high profile for our suppliers’ green products and our consultants have been trained in the benefits of these products to assist our clients in choosing home products that are energy efficient and/or made from sustainable materials.
