Leahurst Aged Care Stage Two

Health, South Australia

Process

The Leahurst Aged Care Stage 2 project consisted of a renovation and refurbishment of the existing building including an extension for a new reception entry area, lounge and dining room, hair dressing salon, and administration offices.

The challenge of this project was to perform the duty in an occupied environment adjacent to the residential bedroom units.

Pascale team had to precisely manage its movements while building up to and on the boundary adjacent Briant Road which required 6 meter deep bored piers in close proximity to overhead power lines.

The installation of a new fire sprinkler pipework system was carried out by accessing the ceiling spacethrough the roof instead of the underside through in order to avoid disruption to residents.

Leasing closely with ETSA was necessary to manage the works in close proximity to the power lines. Pascale construction project manager has successfully minimised disruption by coordinating the delivery of materials and hours of works.
