Aged Care Complex Features Outdure QwickBuild, Tiles and Turf

The project at the Sir Edmund Hillary Retirement Village in Auckland included the removal of existing tiles and membrane and the installation of new membrane and new deck finishes. Ryman's in-house architects found a solution with Outdure's QwickBuild modular framing and support system. The lightweight structure is designed to ‘float' on a membrane to protect it from penetration and damage.

The versatility of the system gave the architects more options than they had anticipated as they could easily integrate not just tiles and decking into the design but also synthetic turf — supported by the framework and the innovative aluminium turf baseboards. The relatively large commercial project was fast to install as the majority of the 1,207m² of QwickBuild was supplied in prefabricated, made-to-measure frames and turf baseboards with partial loose framing for ease and efficiency on site.

The architects and quantity surveyors collaborated with the Outdure design team to maximise the usability of the space. For this project QwickBuild was used as a 'floating floor system’ to support and integrate with decking, tiles and turf using interlocking, hidden fastenings. Installation of lightweight GRC planter boxes together with the low maintenance Outdure tiles, synthetic turf and decking boards reduced the ongoing lawn maintenance and watering requirements, assisting to reduce running costs in the long term.
