First tender package issued for the Sacred Heart Mission redevelopment

Posted: Thursday, 20 October, 2016 - 09:36

The Sacred Heart Mission redevelopment program is off and running. Having met with the Project Working Group, members of the Board and the consultant team, we’ve generated and issued the first tender package for what will be a 2-stage project.

Stage 1B, currently out to market, will consist of enabling works that include a new on-grade carpark, bridge link between two buildings at level 1, a new reception and some minor reconfiguration of internal spaces. Works are expected to commence on site in November. Stage 2A and B consists of a significant expansion of the existing aged care facility and is continuing through the design and tender process. Works to these stages will commence in March 2017 with completion scheduled for February 2019.

The redevelopment programme represents a $25M investment by several funding partners including the State Government, the Catholic Church, and various other philanthropic organisations who recognise the need for quality facilities to respond to a growing need for aged care accommodation. The Sacred Heart Mission aged care facility located at 101 Grey Street St Kilda provides much needed support to those less fortunate than ourselves, so we’re extremely proud to be associated with such a noble organisation, and are very much invested in delivering a great outcome for Project 101 during the course of the next couple of years.
