TAILORED DELIVERY DUE TO LIMITED SITE ACCESS
Highvale Retirement Village is situated in Glen Waverley, east of Melbourne, and provides long term independent living accommodation for the over 55's.
Situated on a quiet street in a peaceful setting, Highvale features acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and outdoor entertainment areas, along with large community centres which offer a wide range of facilities for residents.
Part of Lendlease Retirement Living, Australasia’s largest owner operator and developer of retirement villages, Highvale is committed to delivering high quality amenities for its residents, so when over 30 new carports were required, Lysaght was called in to help deliver the high calibre structures required.
Knowing they wanted strong and durable steel construction, and wanting a good-looking and neatly finished product, Highvale turned to the trusted experience of Lysaght to provide a complete end-to-end solution.
Using LYSAGHT Living Collection® CC Builder software, Lysaght delivered an engineered solution for a multitude of different designs. These included skillion flat roofs and pitched roofs in gable and dutch styles, plus gable inserts, to ensure the new structures complemented the surrounding architecture.
A portal frame solution was also produced for those structures requiring extra height to accommodate caravan access and/or variations in the ground level.
Lysaght assisted by putting forward a trusted contractor who could complete the scope of works, deliver the quality results required and also comply fully with all Lend Lease safety requirements in the process.
Being a residential complex, semi-trailers were unable to access the site and materials could not be left roadside, so a tailored delivery solution was arranged using tray trucks to take materials to the exact location where they were required.
This not only minimised inconvenience for Highvale residents but also made the installation of carports across the extensive village site much easier for the contractor.
