Commencing Monday 3 June 2013, the work is expected to last for 12 weeks. During that time we will be installing pipe work throughout the building, sprinkler heads into each resident bedroom and bathroom and dining rooms. We will try to minimise disruptions to residents, however we will need to temporarily move residents out of their rooms for up to two days each while we install the pipe work and sprinkler heads. Our facility manager Jose Rigor will liaise with families about the moves as they are identified. The project team is meeting each week on site to plan the work for the week and to manage any impact on residents, staff or families.
Our construction manager has presented us with a safety management plan for the site. All contractors coming on to the site will have Police and identity checks. We are fortunate that the Construction Manager, Safin Pty Ltd, has worked with us before and built the beautiful staircase enclosure in 2011. Superior Fire Solutions, the specialist installer, has also worked with us before carrying out the monthly maintenance of our fire safety equipment. Both Safin and Superior are familiar with working in operating aged care environments.
If you would like more information or raise an issue in respect of the work being undertaken please contact Jose Rigor at Glengarry.
