JAPARA HEALTHCARE SIGNIFICANT REFURBISHMENT
We have been engaged by Japara Healthcare to undertake a major refurbishment project. A major feasibility study was undertaken by us involving 13 existing sites across Victoria, NSW, South Australia and Queensland. This involved undertaking detailed investigative meetings with the facility and maintenance managers, including detailed site investigations of each facility.
We are now undertaking the refurbishment works identified in our feasibility study, for 11 sites, across Victoria and South Australia. To understand each facility’s individual needs and requirements, we are holding user groups with each site’s Facility Manager, State General Manager’s and Business Development Managers. Focus groups with residents and family members of residents are also being held for facilities with larger scopes. The unique requirements of each facility means no single design is repeated in any other facility.
Each design must be tailored to suit the existing conditions of the site including the age of each building. We are also working with Japara planning standards and creating new finishes standards to ensure a consistency across all Japara sites.
