Construction of new split level Child Care Facility with on-site car parking
This project comprised the construction of a new split level Child Care Facility with on-site car parking. The project involved substantial cut and fill earthworks and battering to cater for the extensive retaining walls required due to the high level of fall across the property.
The construction is slab on-ground, complemented with a combination of structural steel framing and structural timber framing with metal roof decking and multiple facade finishes.
The internal fit-out includes for acoustic treatments, child care specific built-in joinery and feature floor finishes. The whole facility benefits from an abundance of natural light which filters through to the learning areas.
Extensive hard and soft landscaping with play equipment for children completes the Facility.
This was our second project with Insite Architects.
The main challenge the project faced was the construction and backfilling behind extensive retaining walls. Due to the site having a significant amount of fall from the front to the rear of the property, there were multiple locations where the site was both cut and fill – in order to achieve this, extensive use of battering and back filling was required, before construction of the building slab.
We used a stabilised material which did not require rolling and compaction to achieve stability.
