The newly extended and refurbished Kingston Gardens Aged Care Home is located in the heart of Springvale South and offers its residents quality care, facilities, activities and services.

The first stage involved the construction of a new two-storey building with a gross floor area of approximately 5,000m2. The building includes 61 bedrooms with ensuites; dining areas, clinical and healthcare facilities, beauty facilities, a theatre, a chapel, and internal courtyards; as well as a reception area and office space for staff.

The second stage involved demolition works to and the refurbishment of the existing facility, including the upgrade of 48 bedrooms, and the construction of 10 new bedrooms, a laundry and a commercial kitchen.  The new building constructed in Stage 1 connects to the refurbished existing facility.

The third and final stage of the project comprised of furnishing and external works including concrete pavements, fencing, and soft landscaping.

Ireland Brown Constructions are extremely pleased with the end result and enjoyed teaming up with Japara Healthcare for our first project together.
