Maroba Aged Care

Maroba Aged Care

A 108 bed Aged Care Centre, Newcastle

This project has a client who is very committed to a sustainable outcome and is prepared to review all opportunities for sustainable benefits. This project is presently under the design process and construction is due to commence in 2007.

We are working closely with the design team to revamp the original design to provide what we believe will be measurable improvements in the sustainable operation outcomes for the building.

We have undertaken an in depth ESD preliminary report which has made an array of recommendations, many of which are stretching the design team and providing them the opportunity and tools to expand their understanding of the relevance and importance of sustainable design. We feel it will eventually lead to some important innovations on behalf of the design team which will only improve the client’s desired outcome of a sustainable facility.

Although in its early stages this project will definitely become the benchmark for sustainable design in Health Facilities in Australia.

This project is programmed to be completed in mid 2008.
