St Patricks Green, Kogarah

  • Builder/Developer: Brookfield Multiplex
  • Location: Kogarah, NSW
  • Survey: Setout, As Builts, 3D Scanning

St Patricks Green is a vibrant senior’s community in the heart of the St George region in Sydney. With a modern design for easy-living, St Patrick’s Green features a range of Independent Living Apartments with the option for in-home services, as well as a Boutique Aged Care Home.

The 21,000-square metre three-building development includes 105 independent living units and a 92-room aged care facility set above a two-level shared basement car park. Geosurv was responsible for the construction surveying for St Patricks Green, helping our client to deliver a magnificent project on time and within budget.

The Challenge – As an aged care facility, St Patrick’s Green required extensive fitout to conform to aged care standards. The challenge was to ensure that tolerance of slabs, soffits and structural elements were in the exact location. Lifts on the main building required a tolerance of +/- 10mm.

The Solution – The lift jump form system allowed the Geosurv team to install an instrument bracket, ensuring accurate setout on every level. The same control was therefore used for all levels, increasing accuracy.

All setout and as builts were performed prior to construction work commencing each day in order to limit movement on the jump. Utilising our 3D scanning technology, conformance reports were created on each level prior to fitout. We created a 3D model of the structures which allowed the team to ensure accuracy.

The Outcome – Setout of lifts and as builts on every level were within tolerance. By scanning each level, we were able to get information to the client quickly and with a high level of accuracy. This resulted in time and money efficiencies and ultimately, a successful project.
