Cumberland Views Village Wheelers Hill, Melbourne VIC

role Town Planning, Design Development and Management, Documentation, Administration value $7.5 million completion date mid 2007

The Cumberland Views Hostel project comprises extensive alterations and additions to an existing Aged Care complex at Wheelers Hill in Melbourne's Southeast.

The project consists of two storey additions to the existing hostel building including 26 Dementia beds and 30 High Care beds, a refurbished commercial kitchen, Dining and Living areas and extensive landscaping works including new gardens and redesign of existing courtyards.

The additions are to be constructed whilst the Village is operational, so there are challenging issues in terms of maintenance of essential facilities for existing residents throughout the construction program. The construction is expected to be complete early 2007.
