APP were first engaged to work on this project in July 2019. Practical Completion for Stage 2 redevelopment was completed in April this year. Practical Completion for Stage 3 refurbishment of the existing building was granted in September 2020. The refurbishment was completed over two stages throughout a live operational environment.
Royal Freemasons Ballarat Aged Care caters for 90 residents in single rooms all with private ensuite. The Home includes beautifully decorated and comfortable communal areas for both living and dining. The redevelopment and refurbishment gained an additional 56 new resident rooms, new commercial laundry and kitchen facilities with multiple dining rooms to cater for the additional residents. New outdoor courtyards and landscaping also provides the residents with additional living spaces.
