RSL Lifecare Birdwood Park is an impressive $50M, 14-storey seniors community development comprising a 60-bed luxury residential aged care facility, 76 independent living units and a street fronting café.
Carter & Osborne Electrical is a leading electrical specialist with an exclusive focus on commercial and industrial projects including the health, education, aged care and retail sectors. Carter & Osborne’s track record and reputation resulted in their appointment as the electrical contractor for RSL Lifecare Birdwood Park.
Working closely with project builder Hansen Yuncken and client RSL Lifecare, Carter & Osborne took a preliminary electrical design and developed it further prior to the installation and implementation stage. Project Manager for Carter & Osborne, Scott Day, said that the scope of the work carried out by the company covered all electrical infrastructure, the fire detection system, communications, access control, CCTV, nurse call system, lightening protection and all general lighting and power.
The company had been involved in the project for a period of 18 months through to final completion, with handover at the end of November 2019. “Working with our own staff plus subcontractors, we had up to 25 people on the job at times,” said Scott. “Working on a significant building of 14-storeys on a tight block in a city environment created some logistical challenges,” said Scott. “Moving essential material around the building while other trades were in the construction phase called for good communication and cooperation.”
