Kane have been engaged under a Lump Sum contract by Bolton Clarke for the construction of a new 60 bed aged care building within the existing Moreton Shores facility at Thornlands. Together with the new building, the project incorporates 32 additional on grade car spaces, together with a terrace building which adjoins the existing facility, including a new building entry, reception and function spaces.
Initially, Kane worked alongside Architectus and Calibre Consulting, together with Bolton Clarke during the ECI phase to value manage the design, in order to achieve the desired outcomes. Kane provided buildability input to refine elements of the design, initially advising on some alternative selections eg simplified external glazing, roof and facade options, and alternative sanitary fixtures and finishes. This resulted in significant savings for Bolton Clarke. Kane worked closely with the Consultants to offer an alternate methodology for the new carpark, entry and bus turning facilities which removed sheet piling, resulting in additional savings for Bolton Clarke.
