Glades Bay Gardens, Renovation Update

By 8th September, 2014 All, News No Comments

We are getting closer to finishing the project at Glades Bay Gardens but it will still take some months to complete all of the additional work that we have added to the project. The following work will be completed by the end of the year:

  • The new glass lift installation is in progress and over the next month we should see the glass fitted to the shaft and the lift car installed. Work on the lift foyers across Level 2 to 4 will also be completed.
  • The staircase is being clad in marble and new glass balustrades are being fitted at present.
  • The old lift shaft will be converted to two public toilets, one on level 3 and one on level 4. A new toilet is also being added to the lift foyer on level 2.
  • The old lift motor room will be converted into a public phone/internet room.
  • A new external lift will be installed next to the garages and will replace the staircase that leads to/from the street. This will provide easy access to the street for people with mobility problems and will also give residents access to the roof area of the garages where we plan to have some gardens. Ramina is also keen to grow some fresh herbs for the kitchen.
  • The balcony floor and balustrade replacement program is well underway. The wet weather in the last two weeks has delayed progress but the work is moving ahead well.
  • The external pathways are under construction. We have completed the south side of the block and the western and northern pathways are under construction.
  • The landscaping to the central courtyard will be completed when the construction works on the lift have been completed.

Although the building program has extended from what we originally planned, I am sure everyone will appreciate that the work that we are doing will provide a greater level of comfort, amenity and ambiance for the residents and staff at Glades Bay Gardens.

Glades Bay Gardens Open Day a Success

By 1st July, 2014 All, News No Comments

The Aged and Community Services National Open Day for aged care facilities across Australia (and indeed many other countries) inspired us to open the $3M renovation of Glades Bay Gardens to the public and to invite Tim Webster to broadcast his Saturday 2UE program from the facility.  There was never an expectation that the whole project would be finished (we estimate final completion October 2014) but builders, Twilight Aged Care staff and numerous contractors worked tirelessly to ensure the front courtyard and key indoor areas were completed and looking their best. We could not have been blessed with more perfect weather or a more beautiful day. Read More

130715 Site Establishment 2

It has been a busy time at Glades Bay Gardens with the commencement of our major development program on 1 July. We commenced setting up the site with the delivery of site sheds, clearing of trees and the old tennis court surface and fencing the construction zone. Visitors will know that parking space is limited and with the establishment of the construction zone parking space has further reduced. For the duration of the building program we are asking staff and visitors to park on the street, rather than on site. We need to ensure that emergency vehicles, service and building materials delivery can enter the site at all times.

In the last week we commenced in earnest with some demolition of concrete. This was a very noisy exercise and we appreciate the patience of everyone at the home while this was done. Fortunately the worst of the demolition is now over.

We have established temporary dining space in the former lounge. Visitors will notice that the offices and hairdressing salon the the old dining room have been partitioned off and are now part of the building site. The office is now located in Apartment 39 on Level 4. You might also notice that there are lots of cabling running across ceilings. We have temporarily relocated all our communication equipment out of the building zone that that we can maintain our telephone and computer systems.

From the week beginning 22 July we will see the commencement of ground works for footings and foundations. Through out August and into September we will see the building taking shape. Like us on FaceBook to get regular updates and photo notifications to your wall.
