Multiplex delivers new aged care community at Kogarah
Leading global contractor Multiplex has completed St Patrick's Green, Greengate's $120 million aged care and retirement village at 40 Chapel Street, Kogarah.
The new 21,000 square metre development includes three buildings set above a two level shared basement car park designed to deliver a state of the art seniors community including best in class supported care. The Project comprises 104 independent living units, as well as 92 residential care suites in a variety of configurations catering for 97 residents.
The village features modern communal facilities including a lavishly landscaped courtyard and colonnade, commercial kitchen and laundry, other resident areas including a café and terrace, lounge, theatrette, dining room, hair salon and gym, as well as rehabilitation and training facilities.
"We are delighted to have partnered with Greengate on this project to provide the local ageing population with an impressive blend of essential care and quality lifestyle facilities," said Mr David Ghannoum, Regional Managing Director NSW at Multiplex.
Construction of St Patrick's Green spanned just over a year and generated approximately 240 jobs.
One of the complexities faced during construction was the site's proximity to the operational St Patrick's Primary School and Church.
With the construction zone positioned directly adjacent to the primary school's drop-off and pick-up area, Multiplex consulted very closely with the school and implemented a coordinated materials handling plan.
St Patrick's Green is Greengate's third integrated community, following its award-winning St Brigid's Green community in Maroubra and continuing its strong relationship with the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney and ANZ Bank.
Multiplex has extensive experience constructing aged care facilities, recently completing a Mark Moran seniors living project in Vaucluse and currently constructing an over 55's development in Paddington known as The Terraces.
Nearby in Gray Street, Multiplex also just completed the $277 million redevelopment of St George Hospital.
