The project involved the construction of two new retirement living, residential buildings, managed by Hutchinson Builders at the existing retirement village within Aveo Group’s Carindale Precinct. Following the conclusion of the project, seven new retirement living buildings will have been constructed, with the other five forming part of a later project stage. WalkerBai was engaged to provide the fire strategy master planning for the overall site and to provide the Fire Engineering services for the two buildings that comprise the first project stage. Challenges were presented to WalkerBai with the intention to connect many of the buildings with a common basement carpark, resulting in a united building. The challenge was handled through the master planning and fire separation to reduce the effect of the connection. Other Performance Solutions related to increasing the efficiency of the method of construction, egress system and fire safety systems such as the fire extinguishers.
