Resort-style retirement in Western Australia with green credentials

The new retirement village at Tuart Lakes in Baldivis, south of Perth, was proposed to offer the elderly community aged care support. The resort-style facilities would feature a new clubhouse for residents, providing function space, indoor and outdoor pools, a gym, cinema, and a café/bar.

National Lifestyle Villages engaged our acoustic, electrical, hydraulic, sustainability, and structural consultants to design the resort-style community. In every aspect, we considered optimum health and wellbeing and incorporated features such as low volatile organic compound finishes and furniture selections and above-standard ventilation provision. Environmental impact was also lowered through the reuse of industrial waste during construction, and renewable energy was introduced with accompanying long-term cost benefits. The inclusion of a heat recovery system maintains a comfortable pool-room temperature year-round and, again, leads to cost savings.

Our disciplines collaborated to achieve a 6-star Public Building v1 Green Star rating, effectively raising the bar for our client. The integrated design delivers premium facilities in tandem with significant improvements in energy use—a 66% reduction in comparison to similar facilities—and offsite water demand—a 95% reduction.
