Build quality is of the utmost importance, with only premium fittings and finishes fitted to all homes. Eco-friendly materials and building techniques are used as much as possible, in order to mitigate the impact on the environment. To this end, a reticulated gas network and gas storage tanks have been constructed to service all properties in Terra Nova. All homes are fitted with a gas stove & oven, a gas geyser and a gas heater. This alternative to electricity is also more economical and ensures a lower utility bill for the residents of Terra Nova.
