Weeks to build
Hutchies is honoured to be working with Benevolent Living to bring their Rhythms of Life project alive in Rockhampton. This significant expansion and refurbishment to their existing community will create new opportunities for residents and welcome new members to their growing seniors living precinct.
Stage one of the works includes the construction of a new state-of-the-art residential care building which includes one-bedroom apartments for married couples, as well as the complete refurbishment of the current reception area and coffee shop. The second stage of construction will welcome a new 5-storey building comprising of 40 independent living apartments.
With a unique arts themed focus, Benevolent's community will offer seniors a totally integrated health, wellness and living solution. Designed around the 'ageing in place' model, Benevolent will provide a continuum of care for residents at any stage of their life with independent living through to residential care, as well as respite, dementia, high and palliative care.
Construction of this exciting project will be a huge boost to the local Rockhampton community with around 400 jobs secured across the region. Hutchies has had a long established presence in Central Queensland, and this redevelopment is a wonderful project to be involved in.
This appointment is a key milestone in our redevelopment, Hutchies has a fantastic reputation within our local community, and we are very pleased with the partnership.
Benevolent Living and Hutchies working together is a great partnership – two century old Queensland organisations delivering significant opportunity for the Rockhampton region. We’ve got a big focus on supporting local businesses and workers on this project.
