Project Description:

This new house is located in a bushfire BAL 40 zone. It is a steep backward sloping block which poses significant construction challenges which had to be overcome.

Challenges:

The access to the site is the major challenge with materials often being craned into position. Other chanllenges include the continued engineering changes to suit the block and location of solid rock to build off. The site had no sewer connection which has been connected to the property during the works which included a 27m long trench excvaveted through rock at the rear of the property some 20m below the road level.
