A new retirement village with multiple 4-5 storey buildings over a large basement/podium. A number of structural materials and solutions were tested to ensure a cost-effective structural solution was adopted. Post-Tensioned floor systems were chosen with precast shear walls and shallow foundations. Highly co-ordinated structural design at a preliminary level optimised the structural efficiency and eliminated multiple transfer structures between the residential, communal and basement layouts. The development includes a three level engineered timber Care Building, which incorporates prefabricated bathroom pods, cross-laminated timber walls and floors, prefabricated external walls from Symonite and a prefabricated light timber frame roof cassette system.
