Wyanga Aged Cared Facility
Project: Wyanga Aged Cared Facility for Indigenous Land Corp | Project Manager: Clifton Coney Group
Architect: Cracknell & Lonergan | Duration: 22 weeks | Cost: $1.3 million
Wyanga is a local Aboriginal community based aged care facility that tends to both the homeless, sick and the needy. The property, formerly a hardware store and pharmacy is now owned by the Indigenous Land Corporation. Unity NSW Pty Ltd were selected as the contractor to restore the original components of the building and to provide new and functional spaces for tenants, based on their proven performance and reputation for meeting construction deadlines. Lounge / TV areas, a stainless commercial kitchen, offices, detailed joinery, restoration of marble fireplaces, and marble tiles reused from the original construction all combined to produce a practical and inviting space that recognises its historic significance through the retention of original components. The artwork featured on the south wall is a well known local artist’s depiction of the Redfern community as it has evolved over the past 100 years. Unity NSW Pty Ltd completed the works on time and budget.
“(Unity’s) efficiency in handling administration matters and (their) ability to communicate effectively and work well with project personnel generally…contributed significantly to the project being completed on time and within budget.”
