More jobs in more industries in the beautiful Bass Coast


Leading eco-friendly building company Ecoliv is creating more jobs and opportunities in the Bass Coast thanks to a new construction facility supported by the Victorian Government.

Parliamentary Secretary for Regional Victoria Danielle Green represented Minister for Regional Development Harriet Shing to visit Ecoliv’s site at The Gurdies to announce 14 new jobs would be created thanks to the development. The sustainable living and off-grid construction facility is funded through the Regional Jobs Fund.

The project will include the construction facility, administration office and staff amenities as well a display home for Ecoliv’s carbon neutral range of EcoGeneration modular design homes.

A 10-kilowatt off-grid solar power plant will be installed to power the new construction facility, along with the new administration building, staff amenities and display home.

The $1.58 million project will double Ecoliv’s production of sustainable modular buildings, while the new display home will showcase the latest technologies for a sustainable approach to living – allowing people to view water, energy and waste reduction systems in action on-site.

Ecoliv is a prefabricated modular building construction company and the first modular builder to introduce a 7-star energy rating to its homes.

The company incorporates sustainable practices to its operations and designs, which are constructed locally on-site at its current facility in The Gurdies before being transported and assembled at a final location.

The Regional Jobs Fund is part of the Victorian Government’s flagship Regional Jobs and Infrastructure Fund. The Fund is central to the Government’s record investment of more than $36 billion across regional and rural Victoria since 2015.
