Opal HealthCare provides specialist aged care services for a range of needs, including memory and respite care. In early 2020, Opal HealthCare sought an experienced builder to undertake the refurbishment, at an ECI capacity, of the C03 Display Suite for Opal Chiswick Manor Care Community.
INTREC completed the ECI Display Suite with great success and was subsequently awarded the refurbishment of the complete facility, including 113 resident suites, via a Construction Management delivery model. The project has a construction program spanning two years to maintain complete operations for the Residents and Staff.
The upgrade will include new communal seating and dining areas, refurbished corridors, an external courtyard upgrade and four new communal residential kitchens. The overall project design incorporates a strong emphasis on Memory Care Neighbourhood (MCN) considerations which will be adopted in the resident kitchens, rooms and external courtyard area.
To undertake the works, our team has implemented a range of hygiene control measures to ensure that all residents, staff and contractors are safe. This includes temperature checks prior to entering site, hand sanitising stations upon entrance, hoardings to minimise interactions with residents and staff, onsite compulsory masks, and mandatory flu vaccination prior to commencing onsite.
