Lake Kawana Accommodation
Sports Hub Sunshine Coast, Bokarina Qld
The Lake Kawana Accommodation situated at the Sports Hub, Main Drive, Bokarina, Sunshine Coast, Queensland, is an example of a project undertaken by Housing 101. The client was struggling to make progress due to a challenging and unique project with significant cost restraints. The initial design had 72 rooms, but did not have any catering or conferencing facilities and a forecast cost well in excess of the budget.
Housing101 was contacted for their input and returned with an alternative design that had 84 rooms plus catering and function rooms. Drawing from Jon's experience hosting major sporting groups, Housing101 was able to put forward a proposal on the business operations which in turn, influenced the design of the building.
Once the client and their consultants had analysed our submission they stated (in their own words) they were way “off the mark” in the plans they had. Housing 101 also provided submissions to the council for these planning changes and took the responsibility for the design, building approval and certificate of occupancy.
To meet many of the certification requirements including fire and AS1428, Housing101 developed several innovative solutions for adapting the transportable units and containers to be compliant with building regulations.
