  1. 1. Vineyard A design which not only helps the environment but gives back, to the community. An Inconvenient Truth: By: Noel Chandra, Ben Xureb and Ryan Epondulan
  2. 2. What is our final product? <ul><li>As a group our proposal is to design, for an environmentally friendly urban environment for Australia of 2050 and beyond is a compacted and a producing Vineyard. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Why did we choose a Vineyard? <ul><li>The reasoning in why we had chosen a Vineyard as our environmentally urban environment for Australia of 2050 and beyond is because: </li></ul><ul><li>To revolutionise the production of grapes by growing commercially in the ‘heart’ of Sydney. Therefore limiting the amount of pollution that is made from transporting long distances. </li></ul><ul><li>To be able to revolutionise the new way in creating wine. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>To stay away from drought affected areas and go to a place where a good source of water can be found. </li></ul><ul><li>To challenge ourselves in making something unique and thought quite impossible to do. </li></ul><ul><li>To make a design which gives back to the community in many ways. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Where is the Vineyard being located? <ul><li>After large amounts of research conducted by the group, the group has decided to place the Vineyard at Nullawarra Avenue, Concord West </li></ul>Picture: Location of Vineyard
  6. 6. Why Concord West? <ul><li>The reasoning in why we have decided to place our Vineyard in Nullawarra Avenue, located at Concord West is because: </li></ul><ul><li>It’s in the ‘heart’ of Sydney and is just located 15 – 20 minutes away from the CBD. </li></ul><ul><li>Limiting the amount of pollution produced by long distance travel. </li></ul><ul><li>Large water supply is located right next to it, which is the Parramatta River. </li></ul>
  7. 7. <ul><li>There is a good large water supply which is located right next to it, which is the Parramatta River. </li></ul><ul><li>Currently there is a large amount of privately owned land which is mostly vacant which can be bought out but at an expensive price. </li></ul><ul><li>The climate in the Concord West area has warm summers and cool winters which is perfect for growing grapes. </li></ul>
  8. 8. How will we make our vineyard? <ul><li>The vineyard will consist of four main areas: </li></ul><ul><li>The Greenhouse (inside will grow the four different types of grapes). </li></ul><ul><li>The Retreat </li></ul><ul><li>The Cellar </li></ul><ul><li>The Shed </li></ul>
  9. 9. Building A Vineyard <ul><li>When building our vineyard we have looked at our criteria and looked at: </li></ul><ul><li>How will it work in the year 2050 and beyond? </li></ul><ul><li>How will it be sustainable, environmentally friendly? </li></ul><ul><li>Energy Source </li></ul><ul><li>Materials being used. </li></ul><ul><li>Urban Growth & Decline </li></ul><ul><li>Air quality </li></ul><ul><li>Water Management </li></ul><ul><li>Waste Management </li></ul><ul><li>Budget </li></ul>
  10. 10. How will it work in the year 2050 and beyond? <ul><li>In the year 2050 and beyond our vineyard will work by: </li></ul><ul><li>Money Source: From the sales of producing grapes and wine, retreat and producing energy from renewable energy. </li></ul><ul><li>Compact: Due urban growth, limited amount of land space but have enough space to produce grapes. </li></ul><ul><li>Environmentally Friendly: Reduce our carbon footprint. </li></ul>
  11. 11. What is the land size? <ul><li>The proposed area land located at Nullawarra Avenue at Concord West is 19,400metres squared. Here is our usage of the land: </li></ul><ul><li>Wind Turbines: 6,000 meters squared </li></ul><ul><li>Green House: 7,000 meters squared </li></ul><ul><li>Retreat: 5,500 meters squared </li></ul><ul><li>Shed: 400 meters squared </li></ul><ul><li>- Free Space: 1000 meters squared </li></ul>
  12. 12. What types of grapes are we selling? <ul><li>In order of making grapes for producing wine and selling grapes, grape vines are needed. The variety of grapes suit the Australian climate and we will grow in our proposed vineyard are: </li></ul><ul><li>Shiraz: Red Wine </li></ul><ul><li>Sauvignon blanc: White wine </li></ul><ul><li>Chardonnay: White Wine </li></ul>
  13. 14. What is the size of the Greenhouses? <ul><li>The size of the three greenhouses in which it will contain the grape vines will be around 2,333 metres squared. </li></ul>
  14. 15. The Greenhouses <ul><li>The greenhouses is the area in which the four different types of grapes will grow in. The greenhouse will be made out of: </li></ul><ul><li>Tempered Glass: 2-3 times stronger than regular glass. </li></ul><ul><li>Recycled Aluminium Framing </li></ul><ul><li>Environment Controller (Consists of circulation fans, sensors and vents) </li></ul>
  15. 16. How will the grapes be grownand harvested? <ul><li>The grapes will be grown by: </li></ul><ul><li>Grape vines growing vertically up by being placed onto aluminium frames which are structured as steps. </li></ul><ul><li>Therefore being able to gain the maximum amount of sunlight. </li></ul><ul><li>The grapes will be harvested by hand-picking the grapes. </li></ul>
  16. 18. Retreat <ul><li>A retreat will be made on to the vineyard. It’s attraction would be the vineyard and how it is not far away from city life but it would feel like it is. </li></ul><ul><li>The retreat will allow a group of no more than six to stay. </li></ul>
  17. 19. What will it be made out of? <ul><li>After research being done on houses, the retreat will be made out of: </li></ul><ul><li>Recycled Bricks: 15,000 </li></ul><ul><li>20% cheaper than new bricks. </li></ul><ul><li>Insulation on the walls and ceiling. </li></ul><ul><li>Keeps the retreat cool in summer and warm in winter. </li></ul><ul><li>Eucalyptus Wandoo (White Gum) Flooring: </li></ul><ul><li>A recycled heartwood flooring which is more resistant to decay. </li></ul>
  18. 21. Wine Cellar <ul><li>A wine cellar will be made beneath the retreat. The wine cellar will feature: </li></ul><ul><li>20 reused wine barrels with a capacity of 320 litres. Cost: $3,300 </li></ul><ul><li>Strong Aluminium Framing </li></ul><ul><li>Insulation in the walls of the cellar. </li></ul><ul><li>- Keep wine in at the same temperature. </li></ul>
  19. 23. Shed <ul><li>The covering and the frame of the shed will be constructed out of Recycled Aluminium. </li></ul>
  20. 24. What energy or water saving appliances will it have? <ul><li>The retreat will feature: </li></ul><ul><li>The latest ‘state of the art’ appliances with 4 – 5 Energy Stars Rating. </li></ul><ul><li>LED Lamps: </li></ul><ul><li>Lower electricity consumption. </li></ul><ul><li>Produces more light. </li></ul><ul><li>Mercury – free. </li></ul><ul><li>Water efficient taps and showerheads. </li></ul>
  21. 25. How is it going to be environmentally friendly? <ul><li>Our design of a Vineyard is going to be environmentally friendly by: </li></ul><ul><li>Installing Renewable Energy </li></ul><ul><li>Using Energy Efficient Materials </li></ul><ul><li>Reducing our waste </li></ul><ul><li>Using recycled materials </li></ul><ul><li>Storing Water </li></ul><ul><li>Limiting Carbon Pollution </li></ul><ul><li>Cleaning Water </li></ul>
  22. 27. Installing Renewable Energy <ul><li>Installing renewable energy is very expensive but by implementing them, it is possible that it can pay off itself. Our goal was to make something environmentally friendly and by implementing renewable energy is part of it. The types of renewable energy which we have implemented on our design proposal are: </li></ul><ul><li>Wind Energy (Wing Turbines) </li></ul><ul><li>Solar Energy (Solar Panels) </li></ul>
  23. 29. Wind Energy <ul><li>In our design proposal for our Vineyard, We have decided to implement four wind turbines onto our land. Our chosen type of turbine is capable of making around 20kW. </li></ul><ul><li>The cost currently for one turbine after large amounts of research, is currently around $59,000. </li></ul>
  24. 30. <ul><li>Therefore the total cost of the wind turbines are $236,000. We believe that in the year 2050 and beyond wind turbines will: </li></ul><ul><li>Create less noise due to improved technology. </li></ul><ul><li>Be cheaper because of technology improvement and a government rebate. </li></ul><ul><li>Create more electricity. </li></ul>
  25. 31. <ul><li>Our proposal of the area in which we place our turbines, will be located towards the back of our proposed land. This is because we can: </li></ul><ul><li>Limit the amount of noise being produced by the wind turbines, so then it cannot be heard by residents and visitors of the hotel. </li></ul><ul><li>Limit disturbance to the residential area by making it not fully visible to residents if they see it as an ‘eye-saw’ </li></ul><ul><li>Gain the most amount of energy from wind because there is no obstruction in front of the wind turbines. </li></ul>
  26. 33. Solar Panels <ul><li>In our design proposal for our Vineyard, We have decided to implement twenty solar panels which will be implemented onto our hotel and cellar rooftops. The dimensions for one solar panel are 790 x 404 x 23mm and weigh just 8kg. </li></ul><ul><li>Together the solar panels can produce 4kW. </li></ul><ul><li>The cost currently for the panels needed in order to produce 4kW is $38,000. </li></ul>
  27. 34. <ul><li>The reason in why we have sufficient amounts of energy being produced by wind turbines and solar power is because: </li></ul><ul><li>To provide electricity which can be used to manage temperatures in the greenhouses. </li></ul><ul><li>To power and provide electricity to the retreat </li></ul><ul><li>To provide electricity back to the main power grid which powers mostly the public in NSW. This therefore means that money will be made by providing electricity to the public. </li></ul><ul><li>To reduce our carbon footprint by not using electricity made by coal. </li></ul>
  28. 35. Urban Growth & Decline <ul><li>The issue of urban growth and decline is affecting everyone. </li></ul><ul><li>Currently the population of Sydney is approximately 4.2 million. By 2050 the population of Sydney is predicted to rise 6 million people. </li></ul><ul><li>This will cause more food to be consumed and then even more waste be produced. </li></ul>
  29. 36. <ul><li>That is why, there is a need for a vineyard in the year 2050 and beyond because it provides: </li></ul><ul><li>Fresh food to the growing NSW population. </li></ul><ul><li>Close to the fast growing population of NSW, so it can provide food which is more fresh. </li></ul><ul><li>An increase of tourism to Australia, means that more rooms need to be made to shelter these people. </li></ul>
  30. 37. Air Quality <ul><li>The air quality currently in the Concord West area, in which are vineyard is being built in, is quite polluted. This is because: </li></ul><ul><li>The Parramatta River contains many wetlands with large amounts of mangroves therefore creating a ‘salty’ stench </li></ul><ul><li>Contains a residential area. </li></ul><ul><li>Located near a main road and motorway which is Homebush Bay Drive and Motorway 4. </li></ul><ul><li>One kilometre to the east of the purposed vineyard are factories. </li></ul>
  31. 38. Air Quality <ul><li>To improve the air quality the vineyard will eliminate some pollution by: </li></ul><ul><li>The growing of grape vines takes away the carbon dioxide. </li></ul><ul><li>By not using coal-made electricity. </li></ul><ul><li>Growing a large amount of trees. </li></ul>
  32. 39. Water Management <ul><li>The water source for our vineyard would be coming from the: </li></ul><ul><li>Parramatta River </li></ul><ul><li>Rain Water Tanks </li></ul><ul><li>Grey Water </li></ul>
  33. 40. Water Pollution: Contamination <ul><li>The Parramatta River has been polluted due to illegal dumping of toxics and chemicals into the river. These include: </li></ul><ul><li>Dioxins </li></ul><ul><li>Lead </li></ul><ul><li>Metals and many more. </li></ul><ul><li>In order to make this our water supply we have decided to use water filtration systems which can be used to filter water to water grape vines of the vineyard. </li></ul>
  34. 41. Parramatta River <ul><li>The main source of water for our vineyard will be from the Parramatta River. We expect to filter at least 400 litres of water from the Parramatta River everyday. Acknowledging the current state of the Parramatta River, with its pollution, we believe that it would be reduced but still not suitable to straight away give it to the grape vines. </li></ul>
  35. 42. <ul><li>Therefore we have decided to filter this water which will cost $50,000 for the filtering system and $2,000 per annum to fix and exchange filters. </li></ul><ul><li>This water will be filtered to the level of only it being used for the irrigation of the grape vines. </li></ul>
  36. 43. Rain Water Tanks <ul><li>Storing water in the year 2050 & beyond will be a major issue. When storing water, we will use a rain water tank which can store the water. </li></ul><ul><li>By gaining water, it will collect via a guttering system connected to the </li></ul><ul><li>Retreat </li></ul><ul><li>Greenhouses </li></ul><ul><li>Shed </li></ul>
  37. 44. <ul><li>Cost: $5,450 </li></ul><ul><li>Diameter: 4.560m </li></ul><ul><li>Height: 3.250m </li></ul><ul><li>Storage capacity: 45,000 Litres </li></ul><ul><li>Filtering system cost: $500 </li></ul><ul><li>- Per annum: $20. </li></ul><ul><li>The rain water tank will be used for: </li></ul><ul><li>Drinking water </li></ul>
  38. 45. Grey Water <ul><li>Grey water will be used for toilets. This water will be collecting water from washing, showers and toilets. An onsite filtration system will filter the water. </li></ul><ul><li>Water Usage: - Grape vines </li></ul><ul><li>- Toilets </li></ul><ul><li>Cost: $2,730 </li></ul><ul><li>Grey water Produce: Around 250 Litres </li></ul>
  39. 46. Water Source <ul><li>The grape vines will be watered by water efficient sprinklers, being attached onto the roofing of the greenhouses. This therefore means that the grape vines will be watered by water sprinkling on top of the vines. </li></ul>
  40. 47. Waste Management <ul><li>Waste management is a key issue for our Vineyard. In waste management we came up of these main ideas which help dealing waste management. These are: </li></ul><ul><li>Creating three bins </li></ul><ul><li>Creating a compost </li></ul>
  41. 48. Creating Three Bins <ul><li>Although in some city councils, this has already been implemented such as in Marrickville, Penrith and Campbelltown City Council, but some others do not. That is why we have made three bins which are: </li></ul>
  42. 49. <ul><li>Rubbish Bin – Broken and non – recyclable items. </li></ul><ul><li>Recycle Bin – Recyclable items such as bottles & paper. </li></ul><ul><li>Natural Waste: Food scraps, leaves, lawn clippings cardboard and newspaper. </li></ul>
  43. 50. <ul><li>The reason in why we have decided to do this is because: </li></ul><ul><li>Limit rubbish being placed in landfill. </li></ul><ul><li>Create good compost from degradable products by using deposits from the natural waste bin. </li></ul><ul><li>Recycle and reduce our environmental impact. </li></ul>
  44. 51. Creating A Compost <ul><li>Creating a compost is also another way in making our vineyard environmentally friendly. By creating a compost it can help: </li></ul><ul><li>Grape vines thrive and grow by having nutrients added to their food source. </li></ul><ul><li>Limit rubbish being placed in landfill. </li></ul><ul><li>Reduce our environmental impact. </li></ul>
  45. 52. Budget <ul><li>The budget for an average Vineyard is around $1,000,000. Or budget for our proposed Vineyard is: </li></ul>Item Cost Land $4,000,000 <ul><li>Retreat Total: </li></ul><ul><li>Construction </li></ul><ul><li>Bricks </li></ul><ul><li>Appliances </li></ul><ul><li>Insulation </li></ul><ul><li>Flooring </li></ul><ul><li>Lighting </li></ul><ul><li>Bedding </li></ul><ul><li>Decorations </li></ul>$1,000,000 Rainwater Tank $5,500 Solar Panels $38,000
  46. 53. Item Cost Filtration System $52,000 <ul><li>Wine Cellar : </li></ul><ul><li>Insulation </li></ul><ul><li>Excavation </li></ul><ul><li>Aluminium Framing </li></ul><ul><li>- Wine Barrels </li></ul>$30,000 <ul><li>Greenhouses: </li></ul><ul><li>Tempered Glass </li></ul><ul><li>Recycled Aluminium Framing </li></ul><ul><li>Environment Control System </li></ul><ul><li>Grape Vines </li></ul>$41,000 Grey water System $2,730 Shed $5,000 Wind Turbines $236,000 Total Cost: $5,410,230
  47. 54. Concluding Statement <ul><li>In conclusion we believe that this is very much possible in the year 2050 and beyond. In the 21 st century </li></ul><ul><li>This proposal is suitable and sustainable for the area it is made for and it will be possible. Although it is expensive, it will be still cheaper than the strong effects that global warming has on the world if we don’t act now. </li></ul>
