Shaping Environments to Fit the Rhythm of Life

JHA Engineers


One of Australia’s leading building services engineers, JHA Consulting Engineers were engaged to provide building services design on the Benevolent Living Rhythm of Life Retirement Village project.

“It has been an exciting project to be a part of. We’ve loved the challenge that comes with an operational site that is also regionally situated,” said JHA Director, Tian Song. “It’s an impressive large-scale project that really stands out from other retirement villages.”

“We provided engineering and documentation, including drawings, reports and specifications for the project’s mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, fire, and ESD and Sustainability components during the course of the project,” explained Tian.

“We experienced complex constraints for this site. Works had to be undertaken in stages as the site is still operational, and we had to address upgrading the infrastructure, including power for new buildings, while considering the existing buildings. It meant we needed to be highly detailed and strategic with our design construction sequencing.”

The JHA team began working with the builder and architects during the initial design stages in early June 2020. The team provided support, documentation, and consultancy through to project completion in late 2023, aiding a smooth transition between construction and occupation.
