Warringtonfire Australia, fire safety engineering case study


The project

Anglicare Castle Hill is one of Australia’s premier retirement communities offering a range of accommodation types and facilities.

The Challenge

Warringtonfire Australia were engaged by Lipman to undergo the fire safety engineering for four significant stages of the village development. The construction consisted of Lober Square stages 2 and 3 and Warrina stage 5 consisted of three and four storey independent living unit (ILU) buildings with associated basement carparking. The St James Chapel is in the centre of the site, next to the heritage listed Lober House and at the heart of the community precinct.

Warringtonfire's Solution

Warringtonfire Australia’s team of fire safety engineers worked with Lipman and Anglicare to develop unique fire safety assessments for each building, while maintaining a consistent approach to fire safety throughout the village. The team of fire safety engineers assessed the site wide fire services infrastructure and consulted extensively with Fire and Rescue NSW.

After discussions with Anglicare and the fire services contractors, the fire safety engineers tailored the evacuation, fire detection, warning and suppression systems to the unique hazards associated with ILUs for aged residents. The Warringtonfire Australia fire safety engineers also prepared fire rating performance solutions for the lightweight roof structure of the independent living units.
