Construction of the new 114 bed aged care home for Peninsula Villages.

Early works involved securing the site, demolishing the existing structures and remediation of a small quantity of asbestos. The main works involved the construction of a new three storey building using 12 meter screw piles into sand, a conventional reinforced slab and AFS wall system.

The home includes 111 one-bedroom rooms and three executive suites, all with private ensuites across three levels. The façade is composed of non combustible metal cladding, metal louvres, render and paint.

The new building interfaces with the existing aged care home and is serviced by two lifts. In addition, the care home incorporates a hair salon, one mobile bath / bathroom, three treatment rooms, a wellness room, five small resident domestic laundries, six serveries and multiple open courtyards, with architectural circular voids.

The care model supports residents living in a vibrant and close-knit household with 12 to 14 residents. Each household offers its own alfresco area or balcony, spacious domestic scale kitchen, dining and living area as well as a separate lounge.
