The global mean temperature is on an upward rise and we continue to see new record high temperatures each year. As a result of global warming there has been an increase of natural disasters including earthquakes, tsunamis, storms, floods, droughts, fires and extreme temperatures.
Housing associations worldwide are starting to take action by regulating homes to be resilient to dangerous weather conditions. Home insurers are now taking into account the resilience of a home when determining premiums; the less resilient a house the higher the premium.
Risk or Resilience
Recent bush fire attack measures are now mandatory and have been implemented as a result of severe fire events. Forecasts of stronger winter storms and rising sea levels have led to predictions that flooding in Perth will become more common, severe and likely to cause damage to housing in suburbs not previously considered as flood prone. Approximately 2% of the global insurance premium relates to these events in Australia; however claims are approximately 6%, suggesting our housing is not as resilient as it could be. Let’s make our homes a Fortress now and not wait until we are forced to.
Build a Fortress
Strengthen your home from bush fires, floods, hurricanes, severe thunderstorms and more by upgrading to Fortress Home construction methods.
Resilient Homes are designed and constructed to withstand natural disasters such as earthquake, storm, flood, cyclones and fires; which are becoming more severe and more frequent.
Fortress housing goes beyond being prepared for emergencies, feel at peace knowing your home is resilient to natural disasters.

Extremely well built homes. Supervisor Frank was very accommodating and helpful throughout the build process. Thanks to Great Living Homes team.
It was a very pleasant experience building with Great Living Homes. Whenever we required any clarification or information the numerous people we have dealt with over the duration of the build were very knowledgeable, courteous and prompt. The tradesmen were all very pleasant as well. Thanking you all again for a very pleasant experience and we would not hesitate recommending Great Living Homes.

Great Living have provided exceptional & professional service in the past week. With the shortest turnaround possible, I have been amazed at how quickly things were resolved and took a massive stress off me with selling the house amongst the many other things going on at the moment. I fear most home builder companies would take months to do what you were able to do in a week and I am forever grateful. It shows how good a builder is with the service they provide during and post construction. It gives us no choice and hesitation to strongly consider Great Living Homes as our builder again if we choose to go down that track and also recommend to our friends.
Well the time has come to write the review because our house is finished 🙂 From start to finish, GLH's has been fantastic to deal with. The admin crew down in Mandurah town, the contractors, Tradesman on site and especially Frank the supervisor. His sharp eye and attention to detail is second to none. We couldn't have asked for a more smooth and hassle free build from GLH's. Thanks for designing and building us a beautiful, quality home that we can call our own.
