The $33 million residential aged care facility features 120 aged care beds, including; respite care, a coffee shop, children’s playground, cinema, bowling green and a men’s shed. The facility also offers two secure, special wings with specialist dementia care in mind. The project was delivered to a high standard, in line with the contract programme and within budget. Woollam maintained an exceptional working relationship with all parties throughout the build.
With a local project comes local jobs and results in local economic benefit. This project engaged 35 trades within the region and created 150 jobs. We were able to inject 95% of contract costs into the local economy, assisting in the long-term growth of Mackay. The completion of Ozcare Mackay was also beneficial to alleviating the pressure on the regions existing aged care services.
