Project Value: $16.2 million
Construction Time: 90 Weeks
Architect: Gary Batt & Associates
The development involved constructing a new two-storey building that is linked to the existing aged-care facility. The new building comprises 74 rooms, including bedrooms and ensuites, new physio and activity area, residents’ lounge, laundry, kitchen, hairdresser and staff training hub.
Having been delivered within the confines of the existing facility, the project showcases PACT’s superior whole-of-project approach and ability to coordinate a seamless build in a live working environment. Tying in the extension to the existing care facility required careful planning and management. PACT undertook continuous client liaison throughout the build to ensure that there was minimal disruption to services, staff and occupants.
The other major challenge of the project was dealing with the high volume of existing in-ground services containing asbestos pipework and pits. PACT worked with the existing in-ground services drawings to carefully identify, excavate, and expose the existing services for future connections and / or diversions.
Meanwhile, the project’s contrasting cladding and roofing materials required the coordination of multiple subcontractors. PACT ensured that all associated trade packages and scopes of work were well managed and coordinated to ensure the interfaces between them occured seamlessly on site.
