Diverse Builders added a 12-bed extension with additional amenities at Cooinda Village in Benalla while the aged care facility maintained its day-to-day operations. Despite this challenge, and having limited access and little room for storage, the site supervisor delivered the project on time and within budget, to the satisfaction the client.
The brick-veneer extension included bed lifters, all-ability fixtures and fittings, ramps, fire and smoke detection, and wall protection. The new wing features a shared lounge room, designed to feel like a cosy warm lounge with a large area of timber-look bamboo flooring. Off the lounge is a hallway with a vaulted ceiling and power-operated windows which flood the area with natural light. Several existing walls and bedrooms were demolished to allow for the new facility’s hallways.
Attention to detail is evident throughout, paying combined testament to tradesmen’s skills learned over many years and our site supervisor.
