IT'S AN ALDIE, BUT A GOODIE

ENTERING the magnificent Emerald Lakes over-50s Country Club feels like you are checking into a five-star resort.

Complete with all the facilities one could need and more, the Seachange Country Club Emerald Lakes built by Alder Constructions is a vision in the over-50s lifestyle living arena. 

The gym, library, communal living area and plenty of extra entertaining zones all surround a sparkling outdoor pool which faces west to the Hinterland.

Indoors, amongst a number of relaxation areas, there is a spa overlooking the lake, sauna, steam room, lap pool, cinema, arts and crafts and woodwork room for all to enjoy.

Half of the upper level consists of a three-bedroom caretaker's facility.

The Country Club is the jewel in the Seachange Emerald Lakes crown a gated community featuring tropical landscaping and 126 individual stand-alone homes.

Alder Constructions project manager Darren Chick says the client modelled the projects on a number of similar projects and successful lifestyle developments in Florida in the United States.

They had also previously constructed a larger one on the Gold Coast. However, with Seachange Emerald Lakes being a very boutique development, everything needed to be revised to a smaller scale.

"It was built on a difficult site which posed some structural issues with the footings and the foundations for both the building and the two pools," says Darren. 

"Adding to these challenges, as soon as we dug the first hole it rained for nearly a month.

"The Country Club is clad with a variety of products such as tiger skin stone, timber veneers, render and metal cladding.

"Robert Odgers (the senior contract administrator) and I worked exceptionally closely with our client Phil Goodman and his team to achieve the design intent, and we made sure that intention came to fruition which it certainly has.

"Our client was under considerable pressure to open the Country Club and meet the time frame they had promised to the residents who had already moved into the community.

"The Alder team worked closely and proactively with our client during the construction period to incorporate significant design changes and enhancements, whilst still ensuring the grand opening deadline was achieved".
