Rain causes aged care building delay

Constant rain has caused significant delays in building work at a local aged care home, according to its chief executive.

Mr Matt Downie of Blue Wave Living said: "Unfortunately we have been hit with successive delays due to the constant rain hampering the early civil works.

"We are hopeful that we can gain some traction soon and catch up where we have lost ground.

"At this stage we are still targeting completion of Stage One works for December this year.

"An early completion target is in place for what will become two internal courtyard spaces at 'The Shores' building - as these areas have to be completed prior to us closing off the ends of those spaces with the new builds.

"Landscaping which is normally completed at the end of a project will be completed much earlier for those two spaces for this project.

"We are also constructing new patio spaces off the ends of each bedroom, rather than the existing narrow concrete path that most bedrooms open onto.

"There will be a period of one to two weeks where residents will not have direct access to the outside from their bedrooms, while the old concrete is removed, and the new patio spaces are constructed.

"We will also have to relocate our primary main kitchen operations across to The Shores kitchen area temporarily while we completely rebuild and extend our main kitchen.

"We expect this to occur from late August for a couple of months.

"The completion of Stage One will see an additional 24 new bedrooms, four new household spaces including kitchen's, dining areas and living areas.

"It will establish the foundations for four new 'households' within The Shores building.

"Future stages will see the works move internally into the existing Shores building and see us rebuild internally to marry up with these new households."
