Project Overview

The existing site at Parafield Gardens consists of five detached aged care residence buildings for 50 residents and a separate kitchen building.

This project, connects the existing buildings providing 4 Courtyards, beds for an additional 47 residents and includes dementia and hospice facilities.

The original project scope included the following:

Revitalise the tired aged care facility by connecting 5 existing separate residential buildings into a single modern Aged Care Facility with a full upgrade to the existing buildings to bring them up to the current standards and the expectations of the residents.

The development is to be undertaken over 5 stages to allow the residents to remain at the facility and as each stage is completed the residents would move into their new homes.

Careful consideration of the site reticulation had to be made to ensure demolition of buildings and modifications to the site had minimal or no impact to the day-to-day operations of the facility.

Secon Provided Mechanical, Electrical, Fire and Hydraulic Services.
