Bellissimo Homes have burst onto the sustainable home building scene with a revolutionary approach to building that sees sustainable living suddenly become irresistibly affordable.

In fact, Bellissimo Homes sustainable building methods using Eco‐friendly structural insulated panels (EcoSIPs), do not cost any more than conventional methods such as brick and will reduce annual running costing for heating and cooling as well as provide a home comfortable to live in all year long.

“The future belongs to those building companies who embrace superior cost, time and energy efficient building methods. Since changes to legislation making 6‐star homes become mandatory, we already have our sights set on building 10‐star homes."

- Fernando Giaimo, General Manager, Bellissimo Homes.

EcoSIPS is an engineered and environmentally‐sustainable structural insulated panel that uses a combination of new generation technology and lightweight materials to achieve an incomparable building system with the benefits of strength, cost effectiveness, quality and construction efficiency.

The building system is made in Western Australia using only Australian materials that are used for both internal and external walls. As the system is densely insulated, when you build with EcoSIPS there is no need for any additional insulation, and because it is engineered, it doesn’t require steel or timber frames or brickwork and is it lightweight, weatherproof as well as offering resistance to high impacts and is designed to withstand earthquakes and cyclonic conditions. 

While Bellissimo Homes embrace all building methods, the greatest sustainability benefits belong to SIPs. These structural insulated panels can safely construct multi storey buildings, they are fire retardant, mould and mildew resistant and possess excellent thermal and sound properties.

Homes constructed with SIPs can be built incredibly quickly. On average, Bellissimo Homes can construct homes in less than half the time of a traditional brick home. This can often save homebuilders more than six months in interest, mortgage repayments, rent and bank costs, plus they get to enjoy their new home faster.

Much of the speed can be attributed to the internal and external preparation of the walls. SIPs eliminate the need for Gyprock, patterning, waterproofing and cladding. Walls can be simply painted on the inside and trowel on textured coated on the outside. 

While Bellissimo Homes is gaining significant attention for market‐leading sustainability, it is their flair for style and personalised service which further attracts first, second and third homebuyers.

While brick has dominated WA home building in the past, if anyone can change perception, it’s Bellissimo Homes. As Italian builders, Bellissimo Homes seek to merge old‐fashioned service and attention to detail with the most innovative and sustainable building products on the market. 

No doubt for those seeking affordable, sustainable living, the future is looking very Bellissimo indeed.
