As the commercial sector of Exclusive Residence,
Bilco has exactly what it takes to complete
big projects, such as this three-storey workers’
accommodation located on a sand dune in
Paramount to this build was consideration of
its location in a cyclone region, requiring
a category five building rating. The weather was so
temperamental, in fact, that during construction
of the project, a cyclone warning was issued,
prompting a scramble to tie everything down.
In addition to this consideration, the project
needed to be completed as fast as possible, in order
to provide accommodation for the neighbouring
local and FIFO workers. In all, 56 rooms were
constructed in just five months.
Undercover parking and a common lift,
as well as eight disabled-access rooms, were
also included in the requirements, as was an
integrated fire-response system with station
alert. On top of this, every room required
reverse-cycle air-conditioning, a bathroom,
fridge and balcony.
The completed project resembles hotel-style
accommodation, bringing style and comfort to
this harshest of environments. Built in record
time, it stands as an example to the industry of
what can be achieved in a tight timeframe.
