Holmwood Aged Care Facility
FIMMA Constructions were contracted to construct a new double storey extension for Holmwood Aged Care in Healesville. The project comprised of 46 new beds in 38 resident rooms, including activities areas, consulting rooms, hairdressing salon and supporting dining facilities. While a large lift, external deck and fully landscaped surroundings provide access and engaging pathways throughout the site.
Positioned on a steep incline of silty soils required major retaining wall structures of reinforced concrete and keystone blockwork to create the building platforms, all of which posed significant complications for construction during the winter period. Precise planning from FIMMA Project Management teams ensured progress no matter the weather.
Current technology services were incorporated throughout the building including air conditioning, security, nurse call, surveillance, communications, EWIS, boiler circulating hot water system and heated bathroom floors. A modern design with warm, contemporary feel incorporates large double-glazed windows, raised ceilings and high-quality finishes throughout for residents and staff alike.
