BLOCKHOUSE BAY HOME
Year: 2017 - 2019
Location: 39 Batkin Road, New Windsor
The 39 Batkin Road building was designed for a rest home providing hospital care and required more strict fire protection measures than other types of buildings. These included a fire alarm system, smoke detectors, sprinklers, fire doors, fire resistant paint and more. Many specialised designs were also implemented to meet the requirements of hospital care and increase ease-of-use for the elderly and disabled. These consisted of personnel lifts, dumbwaiters, a broadcasting system, balustrades along the corridors and sensors & call bells for 40 rooms. Orient Construction was the main contractor for this project and was responsible for ensuring every detail met the high standard of its design.
