The Keren Or Centre Alterations at Maurice Zeffert Home in Dianella involved the demolition and modification of part of the existing aged care home and the addition of four bedrooms with modified connecting corridor.
Located in the middle of the site, the modified corridor connects the new with the existing and the spacious bedrooms provide a new home for residents. Each bedroom has their own ensuite, built in robe cabinetry and large windows to let natural light and ventilation in. The alterations also include a new nurse / medicine recess and modified dirty utility.
Matching materials were used externally to connect the new with the existing, with new finishes internally to give a fresh look. The new addition ties in seamlessly with the existing home and provides a natural outlook for residents to the surrounding gardens.
All works were undertaken amongst the fully operational aged care home. With the works in the middle of the site and the facility, great lines of communication were established between all project stakeholders throughout the project to ensure staff and residents were safe during construction, and result in a smooth transition at completion.
