The TLC Mordialloc Integrated Care Facility is a $40m modern multi-generational aged care home featuring 150 bed apartments, an early learning centre, a gymnasium, swimming pool and a medical and wellbeing Centre.
Recently completed in January 23 there were several challenges for the builders project team to overcome with several modern architectural features utilising natural light throughout all areas of the building and an integrated use of curved lines and natural timber finishes demanded the supporting framework be designed to the exact shapes and conceal multiple services behind them. It was crucial all elements also pass engineering requirements to support the added weight of the Sculptform cladding systems.
Prefabricated lightweight steel frames designed and engineered by CMG Frames and installed by SP Ceilings
CMG Frames was challenged to design a solution for the entry soffit and pool feature ceiling support at the TLC Mordialloc Integrated Care Facility using prefabricated lightweight steel frames. The curve radius, limited connection points and multiple mechanical services behind the frames added complexity to the project and made site construction of the lightweight steel frames a significant challenge.
Custom lightweight steel façade frames using Trurecoresteel were designed using state of the art 3D software to guarantee the installation would be seamless and efficient. Once we had our shop drawings finalised and approved by the project stakeholders the steel frames were put into production. Using a mix of cut to length studs, mid span noggins and laser cut components for radius accuracy the frames were delivered in manageable sized curved modules.
"After engaging CMG Frames their process of design, consultation, and service levels were fantastic. They worked well with all the project stakeholders, achieved all of the critical dates and the frames were installed without issue." - Project Manager Luke Yeend- SJ Higgins
