2014 Master Builders Queensland Housing and Construction Awards – Lifestyle Housing for Seniors

This project comprised the construction of a six level, 48 apartment independent living unit complex (GFA of 8,387m2), alongside the existing BallyCara Aged Care Facility.

The 48 apartments range from two and three bedrooms with ensuites and high quality finishes throughout. The building includes one basement level with 48 car spaces, ample storage and two lifts.

The project also involved the construction of a two level multi purpose building known as the ‘Wellness Centre’ comprising offices, function and activities rooms, café and recreational facilities and the installation of an in-ground pool and spa. The diversion and upgrade of existing services was also completed.

Nestled in the quiet suburbs on the Scarborough Peninsula, these were two of the nine master planned stages of the BallyCara redevelopment.

“The Hibernian Society successfully undertook a significant development at our BallyCara site with Grindley Construction. Grindley’s commitment to the project challenges, particularly management of the occupied site and desire to enhance the overall product were key to the projects success.”
