I-beam bridge serves re-developed aged care facility
The freshly finished landscaping and modern construction around Carinity Brookfield Green reflect the care and attention developers Paynter Dixon and landscape architects Penfold Projects have taken in redeveloping this western Brisbane aged care facility.
Landmark’s contribution to this project is relatively small – being a 14-metre bridge which connects the main residential aged care building with a park and shelter.
The Condamine steel I-beam bridge was delivered to the centre in flat-packed kit-form, with all parts necessary for construction included, and installed by Landmark Installations.
Landmark’s design team supplied all relevant drawings to Penfolds Projects, as well as organizing soil testing and engineering certification.
The $25 million redevelopment of the Brookfield centre began in March 2017 and is part of a broader $65 million five-year plan which will see some of the existing aged care and residential buildings replaced with a 96-bedroom residential aged care building, community pavilion and 102 terraced retirement villas.
Carinity CEO Jon Campbell said the design featured bright, open-plan public spaces to create the feeling of being in a stylish contemporary hotel.
