HammondCare, Cardiff

Collard Maxwell Architects assisted HammondCare and its builder with delivering new residential aged care facility in Cardiff. The new facility addresses an urgent need for dementia-specific care in the Hunter Region. The $30 million aged care project was designed to reflect a domestic environment with a cottage style model, giving residents a sense of familiarity and comfortability. Our scope included the preparation of a S96, some residual design, construction documentation and assistance, review of value management items, and D&C services for the builder.

The Lake Macquarie region has an ageing population with many local people needing the type of care that HammondCare Cardiff will provide. The project includes construction of a 99 bed dementia-specific facility, including support for residents with special needs. Accommodation will be provided in 5 single level buildings, one multi-level building with separate buildings dedicated to administration, services, chapel and a shop.

Residents are able to maintain a sense of independence by being able to such as own meal preparation and cooking whilst enjoying the recreational outdoor areas, views and community engagement through the various inbuilt activity features and an interconnected walkway.
