FIRM Construction is currently constructing a 40 resident bedroom facility in Geraldton along with completing a service and structural tie into the existing 30 resident bedroom facility. This includes a full refurbishment of the existing facility and revamped layout to the front reception, nurse stations and laundry area. This project has multiple issues to overcome and factors effecting project handover. A critical aspect is working in and around current residents and staff to ensure we mitigate shutdown time of any major services and ensure the safety of all involved.
Along with the resident rooms the facility features a ground and first floor level courtyards along with a large activity area and kitchen servery providing an abundance of natural light to the building. The entrance features a showcase of high quality finishes such as mechanically fixed imported stone from Turkey and Alucobond, which combine to create a quality first impression. The lower ground consists of a large foyer/reception area, which leads into staff training facilities, management offices, administration & archives, storage areas along with changing rooms and toilets.
