OPAL North Lakes, QLD
Our project involved the construction of a new 134-bed residential aged care facility in North Lakes, in QLD. Northrop was engaged to provide engineering services under a design and construct tender.
The location of the substation was a challenging factor in our design. The development site was on Anzac Parade, a busy traffic thoroughfare. The local Council does not permit visible structures along main road frontage; however, the other site boundary was a private road.
Northrop worked with local energy provider (Energex), in conjunction with the council and neighbouring owner to resolve the substation location.
The project is due for completion in mid-2018.
