Building Spaces to Promote Community Living In Aged Care

The new purpose-built aged care service in Aberfoyle Park, with capacity to accommodate 100 people, is Resthaven’s largest facility. With a focus on high quality, attractive construction, built to fit into the local neighbourhood and community, Sarah delivered a safe and welcoming space for Resthaven’s residents.

The client design requirements included building spaces to promote community participation, such as a community “hub” and Internet Café. The project also included extensive landscaped areas that are protected, secure and safe, to provide residents with the ability to engage with gardening and sensory activities.

Sarah delivered the project on time, fulfilling the client priority to open the facility with patients moving into rooms, in mid-July 2018.

“Sarah Constructions provided an excellent service throughout the design and construction phases of the Aberfoyle Park Development. The Project Manager and his team fully integrated with the design team from day one and led by example in creating a fully inclusive team environment. The coordination, management and programming of trades was excellent. The outcome is a high quality aged care environment which will be enjoyed by Resthaven residents for many years to come.”
