Reddo are proud to be project managing the certification and building code compliance assessment of a new $26M aged care facility design for McKenzie Aged Care Group in Buderim QLD.

Reddo have assisted McKenzie Aged Care through the NCC 2016 Building Code of Australia assessment process and extended co-ordinations services through the local QLD building certification system and QLD Building Services Authority. Our representation and access to the Victorian design team allowed professional regulatory advice locally which streamlined the certification process for the client.

With this project Reddo has demonstrated our services can extend to oversee the interstate building certification process without an interstate office. Regardless of location of their project, our clients can continue to retain and rely on the sound relationship and team approach Reddo offers.

Reddo Building Surveyors have supported three (3) key ‘performance solutions’ in this building design:

  1. Aged Care is now a growing industry and the safeguard of the occupants during any fire evacuation is paramount. In this 3 storey building the fire stairs do not have a standard air pressurization system and discharge at ground floor within the building instead of directly to outside.

  2. Reddo have checked that all evacuation modelling and smoke management in the building supports the fire hazards and includes frequent drills, management procedures, and onsite training for staff and housekeeping. Safe and timely movement of the staff and occupants into smoke zones and unaffected parts of the building means people can move in a timely manner until the fire authorities intervene.

Construction is due to start in mid March. Reddo will continue in a supervisory role during the construction process, providing regular advice and onsite visitations.
