Creating A Landmark:  A New Era For Resthaven Murray Bridge 

The Resthaven Murray Bridge redevelopment represents more than additional aged care beds and jobs for the community. Over 4 stages, the project improved facilities, landscaping, service upgrades, a new community building, impressive reception and administration area, café, hairdresser, shop and library. This expansion and upgrade positively strengthens Resthaven’s presence in the community, turning the Murray Bridge facility, into a landmark.

The key remit when Resthaven engaged Sarah Constructions, was to deliver each stage of the project with minimal interruptions to existing operations and the movements of residents on site. To ensure this, Sarah took a heavily staged approach to works and service infrastructure, with detailed programming.

The Murray Bridge aged care development, combined with state of the art facilities, is timely as Resthaven celebrates its 60th birthday. This project ushers in a new era for the Murray Bridge facility, one of twelve high quality Resthaven aged care homes throughout South Australia.

“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank the Sarah team for delivery of an outstanding aged care precinct. Sarah’s commitment to quality across all stages of the project is commendable…you can see the attention to detail and pride that has been taken to complete the project. The staff and residents are extremely happy, as am I – the project was delivered to our high expectations.

We look forward to working again with Sarah Constructions on future projects.”
