Press Release: Quakers Hill Nursing Home Breaking of the First Ground
Work has started on a new contemporary high-care residential facility for 128 residents at Quakers Hill NSW to replace one that was partially destroyed by fire over a year ago, with an official sod turning ceremony by the NSW Minister for Ageing, and Minister for Disability Services, The Hon. Andrew James Constance, MP and Comissioner Greg Mullins of Fire and Rescue NSW.
The new residence includes 104 resident rooms, large living and dining rooms, kitchen, laundry, library and coffee shop. A series of courtyards provides access from the high ceilinged living rooms to the gardens, one of which will contain a memorial accessible to the public.
Our client, Domain Principal Group, first commissioned AJ+C to review of all possible options for the existing site, ultimately opting to build a completely new high care facility.
‘Our brief to Allen Jack+Cottier was to create a high quality, contemporary living facility that is both functional, and also in a real sense, a home. AJ+C’s response incorporates many years of specialist experience designing for elderly people – we are very pleased with the outcome.’ said Sean Bilton, General Manager – Commercial at DPG.
