Total Construction continues “to make a positive difference in people’s lives through excellence in construction”.

Announcing, the contract signing for the delivery of a single storey Group Home for the Chinese Australian Services Society (CASS) catering to residents receiving NDIS support in south western Sydney. A special thanks to the hardworking members of CASS ancillary units, child care, disability services, vocation and learning for creating the welcome signage for this special occasion.

Construction of this new home has immediately commenced and is due for completion mid-year. The scope of work includes the demolition of an existing dwelling and construction of the new home for a group of five people living with disabilities.

An integral part of the CASS mission is to provide 24/7 high quality support and diversified care services to people living with a disability in friendly home-like environments.

Cass recognises home is “your” safe place, a space that works for the individual, where that person can find nurture, can relax, and can find safety all within the comfortable environment allowing the NDIS recipient to gain access to daily support more easily.

Lara Calder said “this project is the outcome of a creative design led solution for providing a fully accessible home designed for people with varying disabilities. The scheme has the heart of the household at its centre. The focus is on emulating the warmth and atmosphere of a family home providing dignity and joy for residents alongside the unobtrusive inclusion of their carers.

Details such high ceilings and clerestory windows fill the central corridor with soft daylight, picture windows and window seats at the ends of short bedroom lobbies and the inviting central north facing communal hub and courtyard steer this home away from its standard institutional precedents.

The single storey house is articulated with a simple palette of robust materials including red brick and pale coloured corrugated colorbond wall cladding. It extends the internal living areas into equally important outdoor spaces for recreation and daily activity”.

This development is designed to meet the NDIS standards for group homes and it is proposed that the ‘Platinum’ Livable Housing Australia (LHA) guideline be used as a reference for the design.

Total is both proud and excited to be partnering with CASS and Calder Flower Architects to assist the residents in this new home achieve their goals, increase their independence, and to live full and productive lives.
