Logan retirement and aged care resort – Jeta Gardens – made Australian history when it announced a 10 year Master plan, a vision which will see $600 million invested into development to create the first intergenerational facility of its kind in the country.
Currently housing 200 residents and approximately 150 staff, the designs will see the nature of the village change to include additional retirement villas and apartments, serviced aged care facilities, a clubhouse, pharmacy and childcare facilities, student accommodation, a private hospital and international training college specialising in geriatrics. Upon completion the village which will be developed in partnership with one of Queensland’s renowned universities will cater to 2000 residents and 1500 staff.
The location of the development has been carefully selected with Logan Hospital (currently undergoing redevelopment) and Griffith University just down the road, and plans for future healthcare providers in train, the area will soon be home to some of the best medical practitioners and researchers in South East Queensland.
To date, a range of Nullifire products have been used on the initial building extension stages & rectification to existing buildings:
- Nullifire SC902 intumescent was used to provide a 120 mins FRL to structural columns.
- B747-50 Intumescent Batts & FS700 Dynamic Sealant were used in combination to achieve Perimeter fire stopping capabilities
Much more work is planned for this exciting development and we will continue to update you with news on how Nullifire is being used across this project.

Ever since the wheel was invented (and even before that), humans have been devising clever inventions, designed to astound, improve, or carry out a function that too often we all take […]
Is the steel section big enough to achieve the proposed FRL without utilizing any fire protection?
When it comes to new building construction, there is a predominant focus on keeping construction costs as low as possible while still satisfying the performance requirements in the building codes. Regarding fire rating, we are often asked whether the structural steel section is sufficient in achieving the proposed Fire Resistance Level (FRL) without using any fire […]
The relationship between fire upgrade orders and fire rating
When your building is considered by your local council as unsafe when it comes to fire safety, you or your acting strata manager will receive fire safety upgrade orders. A required completion date is set in the order, and thus, you’ll need to install the necessary upgrade such as a door with the appropriate fire […]
