Japara Healthcare Significant Refurbishment
Construction Budge: $20M
This major refurbishment project is to update Japara Healthcare’s facilities across Victoria and South Australia. There has been extensive published research in the design of aged care and dementia specific environments and our expertise in translational evidence-based design has allowed NTC Architects to guide focus groups with residents and family groups, in parallel with detailed stakeholder consultation, to design site specific responses based on a developed set of design principles which will guide our client into the future.
Each of the 11 sites has been approached with site specificity and detailed fabric assessment to ensure a curated solution within the proposed new planning standards and agreed finishes to ensure consistency of the Japara brand and experience.
The design and delivery strategy has ensured that each of these projects can be delivered in an operational care environment and the methodology designed to minimize intrusion on residents, their carers and staff.
Each of these 11 projects are currently completing construction or underway on site.
