The Aria Bay project was procured through a competitive tender in August 2013, with the mission being to build a four storey high end aged care facility on a brownfield site adjacent to an existing facility.

The site conditions for this project were extremely challenging, with access and site establishment facilities limited, and a site gradient of more than 60°. With these conditions in mind, the Canam team created a construction methodology consisting of a simulated “top down” build. This innovative approach consisted of cutting the site from top to bottom and along the way creating benches and completing the piling, footings, retaining walls, waterproofing, drainage and backfilling.

The 9 high end residential apartments were fitted with exceptional finishes throughout, including stone counter tops, Italian tiling, and open plan living leading onto private decking. The apartment block also provides the occupiers with a common lounge area which leads onto an outdoor living area and resort style pool house.

On the back of a successful conclusion to this project and our consistent collaborative and professional approach, Canam also have the potential to negotiate a further project on the same site. This project will consist of two individual five and six storeyed aged care facilities of similar design and construction methodologies.
