Construction to start on aged care centre

The Salvation Army Aged Care has secured a builder, Total Construction, to begin work on the Kubirri Aged Care Centre in Mossman, Far North Queensland.

Following discussions with Douglas Shire Council and the Mossman District Nursing Home Committee, construction is expected to start in the coming days.

Richard de Haast, National Director of The Salvation Army Aged Care, said the milestone marked the beginning of a long-awaited start to this community project, which is scheduled to open in late 2020. 

“We are thrilled to share the news that we have secured a contract with Total Construction, a reputable and reliable builder that is just as committed to the Kubirri Aged Care Centre project as we have been. This milestone means that construction will commence in the coming days and we are incredibly excited to see this stage of the project kick off.”

Steve Taylor, Managing Director of Total Construction, said the company was looking forward to working with The Salvation Army Aged Care.

“This is quite a momentous occasion for us. It’s a great opportunity to be part of an exciting project with The Salvation Army Aged Care. We’ve got lots of experience in the field, including 15 years in aged care, and this marks the 100th project for us.”

Total Construction provides innovative construction solutions across sectors including aged care and health, food and beverage, renewable energies, commercial and industrial, airports and infrastructure, education and childcare, and fit-out (retail and clubs).

Steve said the company led the way with environmentally sustainable designs to minimise an environmental footprint.
