Taylor successfully delivered this new state-of-the-art aged care home and independent living village connecting the growing local elderly population to a comfortable, relaxed, social community to call their home.
Located in Westmead, the facility is conveniently positioned within easy reach of shops and public transport as well as a variety of medical services.
Initially, Taylor engaged in a two-phase ECI involving decant, demolition and excavation works. Following this, Taylor was awarded the Stage 1 Main works package comprising two 6 storey mixed-use buildings, Block A and Block B.
Block A consists of 32 independent living units, 114 aged care rooms, a dementia day centre, multi-functional spaces, wellness centre, staff administration, village shops, ancillary spaces and 2 levels of basement. Block B includes 36 mixed independent living units, an early learning centre and one level of basement with a basement carpark connecting both Block A and Block B.
It was important to our client that Taylor carried out careful planning around the project delivery to minimise the impact of construction activities on the village residents.
To achieve this, Taylor aligned closely with the village community to ensure they remained well-informed and comfortable with the project works throughout the program. The team established a number of communication channels with the stakeholders and village residents to ensure all relevant information was frequent, clear, consistent and understood at all times. These included the use of daily noise indicator charts, notice boards and a daily update of construction activities with the Clerk of Works.
