Sarah delivers a new home for South Australians impacted by cancer

The Cancer Council provides and accommodation for Australians impacted by cancer.

In early 2021, Cancer Council engaged Sarah Constructions to deliver its new South Australian home on Greenhill Road.

The purpose-built facility brings together Cancer Council’s information, research, and support services operations with accommodation support for regional and remote South Australians and their families travelling to Adelaide for treatment.

The six-storey project was delivered in two stages: firstly, a multi-storey mixed use building providing office spaces, commercial tenancies, counselling rooms, shared dining and courtyard spaces at ground level, research and support team offices on Level 1, and 120 accommodation rooms for guests on levels 2-5.

The building has been carefully designed and constructed to nurture and support vulnerable patients, and features communal kitchen and dining facilities, reflective breakout places, family rooms and play spaces, and culturally appropriate rooms for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people.

Upon completion and occupation of the main building, Sarah commenced works on the second stage, a three-level multilevel 150-space car park to accommodate all staff and visitors, located at the rear of the main building. The secure cark park includes a boom gate traffic management system and licence plate recognition technology.

Despite the challenges of delivering this critical project in a climate still reeling from the impacts of the pandemic, Sarah’s team have delivered a high-quality, fit-for-purpose facility that will support thousands of South Australian for many years.
