The Task and Our Role
Lindsay Dynan provided civil and structural design and documentation of some seven stages of redevelopment of this facility.  Innovative solutions conveyed what could only have been considered a difficult and inappropriate terrain for an aged care facility, into a delightful lifestyle facility with convenient accessibility.

The terrain was used to advantage by stepping two storey buildings down the slope, accessing the two levels from a clever configuration of roads running across the site contours.  The finished result is a testimonial to engineering and architecture working as a team.

The cost effective water management systems for the ecologically sensitive site on the shores of Lake Macquarie are also a feature of the design.
