The Village Coorparoo – New Aged Care Building
The Village Coorparoo project involved the expansion of the existing retirement community site with the development of a new 6 storey aged care building linking to the heritage Erica Building. WalkerBai Consulting were engaged by The Village Retirement Group to provide the Fire Engineering for the project, using multiple Performance Based solutions to strengthen and increase the efficiency of the overall fire safety strategy of the building. Solutions were provided relating to the method of construction and protection of openings, smoke compartmentation, the egress system and the fire safety systems including detection, hydrants and boosters. The project included several challenges that WalkerBai consulting was able to capture, resulting in a building being delivered that will benefit the aged care community in Coorparoo.
