A new retirement village with multiple three storey buildings including apartment, amenity and care facilities. The amenity building is to be constructed over an in-ground basement requiring considerable early co-ordination for vertical load bearing structure to avoid costly transfer structures. A cost-effective solution for the apartments has been adopted with blockwork shear was acting as inter-tenancy and load bearing elements resulting in structural, fire and acoustic benefit and a highly cost effective solution. A cost effective cantilevered balcony solution was developed using a precast balcony deck only (no steel beams) to provide the required architectural outcome.
