Project Location: La Scala Drive, Isle of Capri
Project Size: 2,612m²
Project Value: $300,000
Riverpoint is a luxury home set on 2,612m² with six ensuited bedrooms as well as a separate guest suite and study. This incredible home, located on the Nerang River has its own private beach, ten car basement, theatre and tennis court among many other features. When ARC was awarded this project through an insurance company, the home was in a desperate situation and in need of repair. Critical building elements had failed and had left the $10 million property inoperable.
The high profile nature of this project meant ARC was selectively chosen for this project, as were the tradespeople ARC put forward. As it is a private residence, there were high security measures in place on site throughout the duration of the project. The first step in the project was to work alongside building consultants to identify the problems throughout the home. Due to the size of the project, the ARC team had two phases going simultaneously to ensure efficiency; the design team would work on one area as the construction team worked on another area to keep the project moving smoothly.
The work that was completed in this project involved extensive external membrane tanking to prevent the basement car park from flooding. ARC worked with engineers, hydraulic engineers, structural engineers and geotech engineers throughout many stages of the process to prevent further water inundation during heavy rainfall events. The back terrace, the underground car basement and the west wing with pavillion style roofs all had to be redesigned and restructured. The front foyer also undertook serious repair as structural elements had been undermined by water ingress. The 200m2 sandstone terrace required complete replacement as it had leaked through to the guest room and bar ara.
ARC worked with specialist trades to source unique items for the residence. One of the challenges with this project was the landscape removal and reinstatement. A large palm tree had to be hand dug out, removed and then placed back after a wall nearby had been waterproofed. ARC ensured the palm tree stayed intact and healthy throughout this process. The project was delivered on time and all parties were incredibly pleased with the outcome.
