A Retirement Beyond Measure

Leading Tier 2 design and construction company, Growthbuilt, is known for delivering quality commercial, mixed-use, aged care and seniors living, hospitality, education and residential projects. They have built an outstanding team with a shared passion for working collaboratively with clients, partners and top tier consultants.

Since the company’s inception in July 2005, Growthbuilt’s focus has been on new-build, fit-out, adaptive re-use and refurbishments and its management and project teams are involved in all methods of project delivery, driven by a commitment to excellence.

Work commenced on Growthbuilt’s recent project, Anglicare Woolooware Shores, back in 2018 and it has since been turning heads in the industry for all the right reasons. The development is being carried out in stages and once complete, will feature six apartment-style buildings providing 183 retirement living residences, as well as a residential aged care home.

When Anglicare engaged Growthbuilt to deliver this build at Woolooware Bay in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire, the brief highlighted the importance of longevity. Within the facility, the balance of functionality and aesthetics was particularly important to ensure operational needs were met while still achieving a sense of home.

The residences boast generous-sized floor plans with open living spaces, large private terraces and each one with superior finishes. The orientation of each residence allows for a coastal view and so it’s no surprise that the level of consumer interest right from the get-go was high.

Growthbuilt Project Manager Nico Van Zyl led a team of management staff, labourers and sub-contractors on a daily basis to ensure the build was running to schedule, whilst managing complex logistical challenges and maintaining full compliance.

“This stage of the Taren Point waterfront residences includes the design and construction of sixty-three premium independent living units across two new energy efficient designed buildings, connected by a detailed and landscaped podium level,” Nico said. “It also features purposefully integrated community spaces including a gym, multi-purpose spaces, a consulting room and a lounge and dining area.”

According to Nico, the site and ground conditions were unique and the fact that the Woolooware Shores stage is built on an existing landfill presented several challenges.

“The site had many constraints including a stormwater drainage channel, flood and high water table issues, ecological concerns, as well as heavily contaminated soil,” Nico explained. “Careful navigation of this during all stages from design through to construction was essential.”

Growthbuilt engaged numerous consultants including an environmental engineer and site auditor to guide and assist them through this process and coupled with increased rainfall experienced throughout 2021 and 2022, construction was, at times, fairly difficult.

Despite this, the way the site was managed during construction and considering all the environmental constraints, it has been both an innovative and collaborative process with all stakeholders.

“Everything we do at Growthbuilt works towards the goal of quality construction and this is the ultimate measure of successful project delivery and the high levels of client satisfaction which guarantee us the repeat business and positive references which underpin our grown and development strategy,” Nico said. “Throughout our 17-year history, we have worked on high-quality projects and we understand how to deliver these requirements through our certified systems and processes.”

Growthbuilt has an impressive portfolio of projects and is one of the most recognised builders in the construction industry. As well as preparing for Stage 8 of Woolooware Shores for Anglicare, Growthbuilt is working on the Benetti Hotel, in Shell Cove for Oscars Hotels which includes a 117 room hotel, 32 serviced apartments and 42 residential apartments, and Lumia, The Orchards for Sekisui House which will include 330 apartments.

Growthbuilt is also part of an exciting reinvigoration of Oxford Street and will unveil a retail, commercial and boutique hotel development which will be known as Oxford & Foley.
