RMA was approached by the client to assist with the structural design of Townsville’s latest aged care facility. The client being the long term asset holder was looking for three key design objectives, a low maintenance structure and a robust design whilst allowing flexibility for future refurbishments.
The project site was subject to cyclonic wind conditions and poor ground conditions to a considerable depth. The design team, taking these into account, also need to make provision for the locally available skills and trades.
