MIEngineers provided Turnkey Project Management for the provision of a new 55-bed Ageing in Place facility (to be integrated into 4 existing buildings), the upgrade of existing facilities and the provision of substantial community and administrative areas.

The project required development of a concept and detailed design, with development and other authority approvals, within an extremely tight timeframe of 6 months from project inception. Despite the demands, the design team was assembled, designs developed and detailed, approvals obtained and a contractor procured within the required timeframe.

The contract was let under a guaranteed maximum price contract specifically written for the project. The procurement and contract form then led to savings of many millions of dollars for the client.

The greatest success of the project, however, wasn’t time and money; it was management of the project which enabled approximately 200 existing residents and staff to remain in full occupation whilst undertaking such a significant redevelopment.
