Clayton Church Homes – Park Village, Elizabeth
Harrold & Kite Pty Ltd were appointed as the Managing Contractor to undertake alterations and additions to the existing 60 Bed nursing home at Clayton Church Homes – Park Village, Elizabeth. The primary work consisted of an upgrade to the administration area, fire protection; including hydrant and sprinklers and linking all houses with fully enclosed corridors and linkways. In addition, 40 bedrooms and ensuites together with common areas and nurses’ stations were refurbished.
Undertaking construction within a fully occupied and working nursing home was a challenge. Consulting with the CCH staff, Harrold & Kite planned and coordinated the many stages undertaken. The safety and well being of the residents, staff and workers was paramount. Temporary rooms were built so that residents could temporarily be relocated whilst their area was being upgraded. The project also included work being undertaken in the 20 room Secure memory support unit, and this was executed without incident and limited disruption to the residents.
In addition, Harrold & Kite worked with CCH, and the project designers to undertake a kitchen, laundry, landscaping and paving upgrade, including working within a large fully enclosed courtyard. Again, complex staging and attention to safety ensured that all the residents, staff and workers were not compromised in any way
Upon completion CCH and Harrold & Kite are delighted that the upgrade works has totally revitalised and transformed the facility into a modern home for the residents.
