Kiama Aged-Care, Centre of Excellence, is being designed to provide ‘ageing-in-place’ services through an individual’s multi-stage ageing process within the one precinct. The $73m multi-stage care offering will range from independent living, assisted care and low-care, through to dependent care such as high-care and dementia care. The KACOE precinct will include 134 aged care beds in RACF, 64 assisted living units, 51 independent living units and a refurbishment to a heritage community hall and meeting rooms.
BSE is delivering electrical, mechanical, fire, hydraulic, communications, security, ESD and vertical transportation engineering and design for this project with all documentation coordinated in REVIT.
The new development is being built on the old Kiama hospital site where most of the existing buildings will be demolished. The ageing Kiama population is driving the need for additional aged care beds in the region.
