Kimberley Aged Care Alterations & Additions

Working at the Kimberly Aged care facility in Leederville entailed working on a live site with security implications. In addition, it was working around daily operations for both the centre’s employees and patients. Upgraded toilet facilities, storage, courtyards, and new alfresco and undercover areas were all included in the scope of work. Parts 1A-1C, as well as 2A and 2B, were separable in this staged construction.

 

1ST STAGE

The Dining Courtyard, external wall and glazing work, the dining room floor, and other bathroom modifications throughout the property were all part of the project.

These tasks included installing temporary hoarding to keep the centre open throughout construction. The bathroom upgrades were carefully planned, with only two restrooms out of service at any given time.

2ND STAGE

The rear eastern courtyard works storage, covered patio space, and the multipurpose room was all part of the project. This section was built as an addition to the existing building with minimal interruption to the centre, ensuring safe evacuation from the current fire exit at all times.

 

Stage 2B was the activity room, which involved removing old glazing and installing new glazing. For the centre’s patients' protection, the new automated door was properly programmed in, removed, and replaced on the same day. All of the work was deliberately planned to cause a minimal amount of disturbance on this important site.
