Everil Orr Retirement Village Redevelopment
Everil Orr Village was built up over a number of decades, buildings had become tired and under-utilised and the village faced competition from newer retirement communities, which offer superior facilities and accommodation. The existing buildings required investment to bring them up to current standards and their configuration on the site did not make the most of the land available. As a consequence, this physical fabric did not effectively support the service delivery on the site, which led to Airedale Property Trust making the decision to redevelop the retirement community in 5 stages.
A focus on design-led outcomes was adopted to generate the energy and inspiration needed to achieve the goals of Airedale Property Trust. The application of urban design, landscape architecture, architecture, and interior design perspectives was adopted, on the basis that a problem cannot simply be solved by consideration of just one aspect. Consideration of client needs, strategy, vision, operational requirements, staging, and infrastructure issues was also considered.
Everil Orr Village is located in a desirable and established neighbourhood, with convenient access to good transport links and local amenities. The redevelopment of the village offers the chance to build on these positive qualities.
Redevelopment of Stage 1 provides a new care facility including 22 independent living apartments, common amenity service facilities, extensive and comprehensive landscaping, roading and carparking.
Redevelopment of Stage 2 provides a new care facility including 27 independent living apartments, common amenity service facilities, extensive and comprehensive landscaping, roading and carparking.
The completed redevelopment will not just bring new life to the village, but also has the capability to enrich and enhance its value to the community both in its service provision and its physical amenity.
RDT Pacific will be providing Cost Management/Quantity Surveying services for Stage 3 of the redevelopment starting late 2019.
