Goodwin Farrer Aged Care

Goodwin Farrer Aged Care
Among the challenges we overcame in this $115m four-year project for Goodwin Farrer Aged Care was building in a live environment where residents’ safety and comfort were uppermost priorities.

We invested the necessary time discussing works staging with our partners at Goodwin and looked for opportunities to accelerate the program through value engineering and scheduling to minimise any disruption.

Among the landmark features we also incorporated is architect AMC’s super graphic of a wheat sheath on a Locker’s Atmosphere perforated metal façade skin. It’s a nod to the suburb’s namesake, William Farrer whose wheat breeding techniques established a national industry.

We delivered 150 diverse and adaptable units across two stages for this build, with a centrepiece two-storey clubhouse that incorporates a gym, lounge, bar, commercial kitchen, theatre, chapel, library, billiard room, reception and associated amenities.

From demolition and construction to specialised undercover scooter parking and 8500m2 landscaping, we’ve helped create a sophisticated, high-quality environment for residents and staff.
