Project Details:

This integrated social housing project provided affordable housing for low- to moderate-income earners as well as for the elderly and disabled. It also included commercial and retail spaces on the ground floor.

Environmental considerations were a key priority for the client, with the project designed to include a range of innovative environmental features.

To avoid further delay and to overcome hard rock in the basement that proved difficult to excavate, Lahey changed the development methodology to have the structure redesigned with a pour break between the east and west. This meant we could develop the east while still excavating the building basement on the west.

Lahey also appointed a Community Liaison Officer to efficiently manage all relevant community and stakeholder engagement and communication.
