WELCOME 2010 As we enter this exciting, new decade we are reminded of the incredible year we have left behind. 2009 began with the growing repercussions of the Global Financial Crisis which will continue to have a follow on effect in the behaviour of businesses and consumers worldwide. The First Home Owner’s Grant and Boost helped generate the motion towards economic stability for the Australian economy and we are pleased to have been a part of the recovery process. In the past 25 years, Burbank has provided homes for over 20,000 Australians so we were delighted to be awarded the 2009 UDIA Victorian Award for Excellence in Affordable Development. The award was presented for our work at Metro 3175 in Dandenong, a project which has provided an example for other estates across Victoria. 2009 also brought the news of our co-founder Eddie Puhar’s retirement. Eddie’s presence will be sadly missed by all here in the Burbank family, but we have no doubt he will never be too far from the heart of Burbank where we will proudly continue the vision he helped build.

• Estates – Parklife at Saltwater Coast

By all accounts, the next decade promises more challenges and opportunities. Issues such as our soaring population and climate change have been hot topics for industry research and development. We are confident Burbank will continue to lead the industry in providing practical, innovative solutions ensuring the highest in quality and style for a new generation of homeowners.

EDDIE PUHAR

Retires as Joint Managing Director Described as a gentleman, mentor and friend, Eddie Puhar has decided to retire as Joint Managing Director at Burbank to spend some quality time with his wife, children and grandchildren. Co-founder and Joint Managing Director, Eddie Sanfilippo reflected on their initial dream to start a building company which would provide for their families and how that vision resulted in the employment of over 200 employees across Victoria. “25 years ago, Eddie and I decided to get together and build. We entered the market during some challenging times. The country was in deep recession with 19% interest rates,” he said. “We got through those times and we now, more than two decades later, have produced what you see all around us and what you see in subsequent development.” The two Eddies, as they were affectionately called, built their first two display homes in Altona Meadows in 1987. As we head into 2010, Burbank has more than 60 display homes showcasing a fraction of the product choice available. About his stepbrother, Eddie Sanfilippo added, “No one could want a better partner, a better brother, a better guy. While he will be missed at Burbank, I expect Eddie’s plans for retirement will be exciting for both him and the entire Puhar family.” There is no end to the warm tributes from Eddie’s colleagues at Burbank. Projects Division Manager, Sam Failla says, “When I took over Eddie Puhar’s construction management role in 1998, I had the benefit of Eddie’s shoulder all the way, as he guided and supported me in all the decisions I made. I actually moulded my style of management on his great example.” Maryann Hill, one of Burbank’s first employees, says Eddie had a warm presence in the office.

“He has been there to support me through some tough times but has given me the confidence in myself to believe that I can succeed in my career. He always made himself available to listen,” she said. Andrew Mammarella, Purchasing Manager came to Burbank as an apprentice carpenter and remembers learning some important life skills from Eddie. “His ability to be the boss when the job needs to be done as well as a companion when times were tough is something that all of us in the Burbank family will sorely miss,” Andrew said. Jane Davidson, Eddie’s Personal Assistant and Construction Administrator, says her 7 years of working for Eddie and sons Luke and Paul, were filled with great moments she will fondly remember. “I have a great deal of respect for Eddie and the wonderful values he and his family brought to the greater Burbank family. Despite his role, he always continued to have hands-on involvement with every aspect of construction. When I suggested he had employees to do the work, he’d say, ‘but Jane, I love this!’ and you could see he always did,” she said. Eddie Puhar recalls the company’s humble beginnings. “It’s been an exciting time - the first 6-7 years were the hardest I think for us, our cashflow was very low, banks were very ungenerous.” Eddie Puhar said.

“It took us a good ten years to start moving. I think once Eddie Sanfilippo joined the company, we started growing rapidly, not just by one or two houses, but by 50, 60 or 100 houses per year. We’ve grown every year. Not just by staff, but by reputation and by numbers.” In a speech to Burbank employees, he added, “It’s rewarding to see so many people employed at Burbank. Eddie and I both recognise that it is important to have a big family – because you are family – for the company to grow even further.” Eddie has retired from his role as Joint Managing Director at Burbank but continues his involvement with other companies within the Burbank Group, including National Pacific Properties.


Here are some tips to make the most of the experience. Know your builder “It’s important to feel comfortable with your builder,” says Rob Puzzolo, State Sales Manager. “Our Sales Consultants provide a friendly, professional service and are happy to answer all of your questions so that you can be confident in making an informed decision.” Rob insists it’s important to seek a builder with a good reputation and just as they say insurance companies are only as good as their claims departments, builders with minimal warranty issues are a good place to start. Know your budget It can be easy to be swept away by the display home experience and sure, we all love to dream, but with a clear idea of how much you can spend, the practical side of finding a home within your means will be a lot easier. Burbank’s Sales Consultants are equipped with information and advice about how the finance process works to organising pre-approval of your loan through National Pacific Finance.

Display Home

SAVVY

If you’re hunting for a new home, display centres are a great way to see floorplans come to life and get a feel for the kind or quality you can expect. The homes are generally fitted out by interior designers and polished to your highest aspirations making the experience a delight to the senses. Visit one of our many display locations across Melbourne and Geelong. Go to: http://www.burbank.com.au/Displays.aspx to download your Burbank Display Centre Guide.

How many bedrooms do you need now and in five years time? Are you expecting to have elderly relatives live with you in the long-term? Is a home-office an option? Research your area Are you looking for a house and land package or do you own your land? The web and community newspapers are great resources for finding out about the area you plan to build in. “If you own your land, you might also have specific developer’s requirements for the type of home to suit your block dimensions and building envelope, if applicable,” Rob adds. “Burbank has displays scattered across all regions of Melbourne, making it easy to find the right home to suit your lifestyle. If you have an idea of your family’s requirements up front, you can shortlist the designs that suit you,” he said.

BURBANK WINS U FOR AFFORDABLE Receiving the UDIA Victorian Award for Excellence in Affordable Development, Burbank’s Joint Managing Director, Mr Jarrod Sanfilippo described Metro 3175 as a successful solution for the State’s future population and affordability challenges. “Metro 3175 was created in partnership with VicUrban, the City of Greater Dandenong and the State Government. We designed and developed a variety of affordable, contemporary homes, including architecturally designed, sustainable homes, townhouses and apartments with fully landscaped streetscapes, close to Dandenong’s CBD and public transport system,” he said. “Our specifically planned, turn-key packages allowed many home buyers a chance to leave the rental market at virtually no additional cost.”

SUMMER VIEWS PRODUCT REVIEW:

BRIVIS PROFILER What is Evaporative Cooling?

Evaporative cooling is one of the healthiest ways to cool your home because it replaces stale, old air with clean, fresh cooled air into your home many times an hour. The air inside your home is never re-circulated which means smells and airborne germs are expelled… fresh air can be introduced by simply turning on the fan and removing stale air from inside your home any time of the year! Evaporative Cooling is also an inexpensive cooling option compared to refrigerated ducted systems; they have lower installation costs and are seven times* cheaper to run. Indoor or outdoor living, with doors opening and closing… no problems for Evaporative Cooling! Brivis Evaporative Cooling is a system that is installed on the roof and connected to a series of ducts and outlets placed throughout the house. It produces effective cooling by combining a natural process of water evaporation with a simple reliable air moving system. Fresh air is taken from outside, pushed through the moist pads where it is cooled by evaporation and then circulated throughout your home through the outlets and expelled out through opened windows… just like a cool, refreshing sea breeze! What is the Brivis Profiler? A Brivis Profiler is part of the evaporative range that is available at Brivis. It is installed on the roof and with its innovative sloping base; it can be positioned discreetly on your roof. The Brivis Profiler is available in the four most popular roof colours in Australia which include Beige, Charcoal, Terra Red and Rivergum. It can be controlled by one of the Brivis controllers – Manual, Programmable and the Brivis Networker. For more information please review the Brivis website www.brivis.com.au * “Choosing a Cooling System” SEAV, Nov.2002.

The development was a direct response to the State Government’s Melbourne 2030 Report, which indicated a strong need for affordable, accessible housing in close proximity to Victoria’s Central Activity Centres. It was the first major development of its type in the area. There are many advantages for home buyers living at Metro 3175. There is the benefit of reduced commuting time to work, excellent access to long established amenities, businesses, entertainment, transport and infrastructure and in many cases, the opportunity of remaining close to relatives who may have established homes in Dandenong. “The original Urban Land Corporation commitment was 1,400 new mixed density homes, starting in 2003,” Mr Sanfilippo said. “We now estimate Burbank’s current and future projects at Metro 3175 to be approximately 75-80%.” Burbank’s original ‘up and over’ terrace designs and mansion apartments have since provided a model for other medium density housing in the estate and indeed in other estates, across Victoria.

FRIENDLY FEEDBACK

DIA AWARD DEVELOPMENT Its turn-key townhouses include both large and small considerations such as internal and external light fittings, letterbox, clothesline, gas boosted hot water, carpet and floor tiles, front landscaping, fencing and paving. The package also includes reverse cycle/ split system heating and cooling, a remote control for your garage and an alarm and intercom system. Fixed site costs and local authority requirements are also taken care of as part of the package. CEO of VicUrban, Prue Sanderson, congratulated Burbank on this great honour. “This award recognises Burbank’s work at VicUrban’s Metro Village 3175 development; where quality new and highly liveable homes are being built within walking distance of Dandenong Station / Transit Interchange and the city centre,” she said. In addition to its medium density units, Burbank has also built a number of detached residences within the estate, complementing the estate’s ‘village’ theme, in line with VicUrban’s design guidelines. “At Burbank, we are proud to lead the industry in providing sound design and quality products at affordable prices,” Mr Sanfilippo added. “The high standard across our diverse product range is a credit to the strength and experience of the team at Burbank.”

– MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR ALFRESCO Adding an alfresco or pergola to your home plan can have some great advantages. These undercover spaces extend your living area and inject a fresh indoor/outdoor feel to your entire home. Decorating the outdoor space can be as simple as a few pot plants to a well-planned extra room. Burbank’s Interior Designers, Jacqui Mallia and Sue Lawler have some tips to make the most of this space: • Bifold doors are a sensational way to open up the space between your living area and alfresco. If you are worried about screening out insects, you might like to consider retractable ‘phantom screens’ which attach to bifolds or sliding doors, held in place with magnets.

• Most outdoor furniture needs undercover protection from the elements to last. Be careful to ask whether the furniture you choose is weatherproof. We have found while some items are stainless steel for example, the screws holding the pieces together rust and deteriorate. There are new materials such as synthetic rattan made from high density polyethylene which are a weatherproof, UV protected alternative to traditional, woven wicker furniture. • Take a look at the whole picture and think about what you will do with that area. Having a dining table and chairs outside is great but will look cluttered if it is placed close to your interior meals area. • You could decorate with a few pot plants. If you’re not a green thumb, you’ll be surprised to see how lifelike some of the artificial plants can appear, giving you the ‘feel’ without the water restrictions.

ASCENT TO FAME To experience the perfect balance between function and form, you can’t go past the Ascent 2500 on display at Eve Estate, Cranbourne North. The first drawcard of this beautiful home is its 7-Star Energy Efficiency rating making the home cooler in summer and warmer in winter than an average Melbournian home which commonly rates at around 2.5-Stars. All Burbank Future Collection homes include double glazed windows and quality insulation, a rainwater tank connected to the toilets and gas boosted, solar hot water. The rear plan of the home is also ‘flippable’ to capture the suns rays in winter. Adaptability is another feature of this design with no less than 15 options to adjust the plan to suit your lifestyle needs. Watching a movie at home would hardly seem a compromise to a night out if you have a home theatre to kick back in. Perhaps the perfect option to add is a workshop for the home handyman. All three Ascent sizes fit on a 14 metre wide block catering for most land developers requirements and guidelines. Space is well catered for with two separated living areas. The central kitchen has a direct view to each living area. You’ll have greater piece of mind as you prepare the family’s meals while supervising their many activities throughout the home. A dual access walk-in-pantry is a definite plus for large families. Security has also been given a spotlight in this home, with interior access from the garage a clear advantage at night and placement of the minor bedrooms zoned away from the front of the home. The 3 decent sized minor bedrooms form a wing including a central fully-serviced bathroom and separate toilet.

A choice of three articulated facades provide a visually pleasing perspective in the spacious master bedroom, situated at the entry of the home. A sizable walk-in robe and ensuite create easy, stress free mornings. All Future Collection homes come standard with Advantage Specifications, a selection of standard specifications such as stainless steel fittings and appliances and for the kitchen and Cerabo round counter basins with gooseneck mixers in the bathrooms. If you visit the Ascent 3000 on display at Mernda Villages, you’ll also notice a photovoltaic system has been installed as an upgrade. This is an option available through our Edge Selection Studio and another example of how any home can be adapted to make use of renewable energy. As opposed to solar hot water systems, a photovoltaic system generates electricity for the whole house, feeding any surplus electricity back into the Grid.

NEW DAWN FOR AURORA Burbank Leads the Way with the Estate’s First 7-Star Homes The Aurora Estate, Epping North marked a new dawn in master planned communities and four years down the track, this VicUrban development maintains its reputation as a success story in sustainable building. With the first display village closed late December, this new selection of displays is even more exciting with Burbank showcasing the first 7-Star Energy Efficient homes on the estate. Burbank’s Operations General Manager, Mr David Borg, said the new centre drew a huge response from home buyers with over 170 groups visiting on the day of its opening in January. “Burbank launched the first 7-Star Energy Efficient homes displayed on the estate. Our homes were very well received,” he said. “A number of family activities were organised and it was pleasing to see the local community join in the fun of the day.” The original principles guiding developer VicUrban’s planning of Aurora were to create a ‘prosperous community’, providing ‘green living, housing choice, great value and early delivery of services’. By all accounts the Aurora project has succeeded in achieving its aim, with energy efficient homes, water wise landscaping, grey water and fibre optic connection along with well planned open spaces, shopping and facilities. It was a benchmark for all future development, winning the prestigious Urban Development Institute of Australia (Vic) Award for Environmental Excellence in 2007. Burbank’s long established partnership with VicUrban has seen the success of a number of developments throughout Victoria. Burbank created a number of 6-Star Energy Efficient designs for Aurora. Two of these homes were in fact awarded HIA-CSR Victorian Housing Award for Energy Efficient Project Home of the Year – The Corella in 2006 and the Grebe in 2007. In 2010, Burbank have launched two brand new displays from its popular 7-Star Energy Efficient Future Collection of Homes - the Evolution 2300

and Revolution MKII 2880. Where a 6-Star Energy Rating was expected to halve energy usage (in comparison to the average Melbourne home of 2.5-Stars), a 7-Star Energy Efficiency Rating goes even further to save on energy and at the end of the day, save money worth spending elsewhere. The 3 bedroom Evolution 2300 was created to suit a narrow block width while including comfortable living and entertainment spaces with a separated sleeping wing. The design allows for a spacious family and meals area, as well as a separated theatre or optional 4th bedroom. The Revolution MKII offers a number of possibilities for a variety of lifestyles. This 3 bedroom plus study home includes two separate living areas, perfect for growing families. The study located at the front of the home could be a well placed home office or alternatively may be of better use as a guest bedroom. The 7-Star Energy Efficiency rating of Burbank’s Future Collection of Homes is achieved through passive design strategies to maximise solar access and cross ventilation. This, combined with good quality, well researched eco-friendly products help to maintain comfortable temperatures in winter and summer. Double glazed windows and sliding doors with thermally improved aluminium frames, gas boosted, solar hot water system and rainwater tank are only a few of the standard inclusions in any Future Collection home.

Supplier Spotlight

BORAL AUSTRALIA

With seven plants across the East Coast, Boral is Australia’s second largest producer of clay bricks and pavers. The benefits of building with bricks are long known, from acoustic and thermal performance to the overall low effort needed to maintain their life and appearance. Bricks don’t twist, warp, rot or decay. They neither erode nor dent. Boral Bricks are kiln-fired at temperatures of up to 1130ºc which means colour is locked in with no blistering or peeling. Boral Bricks can be used in external and internal veneer and cavity walls, floors and architectural features for commercial, municipal and residential projects. Some can be specified Exposure Grade for coastal or harsh soil areas. With a spectrum of colours in Escura to the natural limestone looks in Elan, Boral is an obvious product choice for Burbank. There are currently more than 200 brick colours and finishes across seven product ranges. Today’s brick shades and textures mean endless design options for buildings that breathe. Sam Cimino, the Account Manager for the Burbank Group for the past 10 years believes the mutually beneficial relationship to be an integral part of Boral Group’s substantial growth over that period. “I first met Eddie Sanfilippo 10 years ago and the relationship has been very strong between Boral Bricks and Burbank since then, especially during the pre GST period where all building products were hard to obtain,” he said. “Jarrod Sanfilippo has continued the ‘Burbank approach’ to build strong relationships with his friendly and respectful approach to Boral.” Sam also has a very strong bond with recently retired Eddie Puhar and his family and was honoured to speak at his farewell function in Williamstown late last year. “Boral are proud to be a Gold Partner with Burbank with a substantial display at Edge and at various display centres,” Sam added. “The Boral Bricks and Burbank Group relationship is a long and strong one, with both parties being an integral part of each other’s future.”

BURBANK STEPS INTO ACTION Burbank’s participation in the Global Corporate Challenge began with the initiative of 8 employees in May, 2008 to raise funds and awareness of health and wellbeing in the workplace, prevention of disease and environmental consciousness. The Challenge is a program running over 125 days, where registered teams are given pedometers to record their daily steps. These steps are converted to kilometres that are used to ‘walk’ a virtual tour of the world. 2009 saw Burbank sponsor 32 Challenge participants, including Burbank’s Joint Managing Director, Jarrod Sanfilippo. In a report written in conjunction with Sustainability Victoria, it was calculated Burbank’s participants walked a total of 40,800,574 steps (walking and cycling) equalling a total distance of 26,112 kms with a carbon abatement of 979kg of CO2 (using 2007 Carbon Abatement figures). Around half of the participants reported an increase in energy and fitness and 33% noted a loss in weight. Burbank’s highest achiever, Chris Orme described the event as absolutely positive and extremely motivating. “By taking on the challenge head on and pushing yourself to achieve your daily goals you feel a sense of satisfaction which in turn motivates you to keep trying to improve, knowing that both the physical, mental and general health benefits are worth the effort,” he said. As May approaches, Burbank are once again keen to improve on last year’s results.
