Fire safety solutions for multi-level aged care
Offering permanent, respite and dementia care to 210 residents, Livingstone Gardens is a state-of-the-art aged care residence located in Vermont South.
The multi-level residence including a central atrium connecting all levels, and multiple courtyards and balconies provides a homely environment with a sense of living in a small community within a large neighbourhood.
Development of the fire safety strategy relied upon input from the facilitator with respect to occupant and staff emergency evacuation procedures. In addition, multiple fire safety systems (active and passive) assisted in providing a complex fire safety strategy whilst achieving architectural flexibility within the design.
