Project Specifications

Our Lady of Consolation Aged Care Services Ltd

$16 million

Toongabbie, New South Wales

December 2019

Construction of a seven-storey mixed used development.


This project comprised 5 levels of residential Independent Living Units, commercial spaces, courtyard, landscaped rooftop terraces and a 2-level basement car park. Our scope also included for the introduction of a side lane and extension of the existing rear lane and associated infrastructure works.

The civil works required contiguous piles and concrete capping beam which supports 2 levels of sub floor basement car park.

Once out of the ground, the building extends 5 storeys up in a combination of concrete suspended slabs and AFS walling system.

The architectural highlight of the building is the centre courtyard which provides natural light throughout and allowed space for aesthetic landscaping.


As a means of expediting a tight program, we explored alternative building methods in close liaison with the client and consultants.


Total provided an alternate basement temporary propping system.

We reviewed design and buildability options which included an alternative to the AFS walling system.
