Total continues to build on a reputation for excellence in the construction industry by winning the Aged Care Buildings, open price category for Edensor Gardens a $40.5m, 139 bed aged care home.

“Total is extremely proud of this major award. Seeing residents call Edensor Garden their home is very satisfying for all at Total. What a way to top off 2020 which has been a challenging year for all.  I’d like to thank all of the committed Total staff, sub-contractors, suppliers and team of consultants each of whom played their part in making this award possible.  And one very big thank you goes to Mr Michael Kresner from Advantaged Care for trusting Total to construct this outstanding building” Said Steve Taylor Managing Director at Total.

Brian Seidler, The Executive Director of Master Builders Association of NSW said “MBA received a record number of entries and judges were astounded by the quality and complexity of entries. Judges spent months inspecting outstanding projects and have made a very difficult decision. The high quality made 2020 the most competitive year to date, and following the inspection of ‘Edensor Gardens’, I am pleased to inform Total they won the ‘Aged Care Buildings’ category.

For 18months, Total worked with Advantaged Care, Integrated Design Group Architecture and Turner Studio interiors to design and construct this spectacular aged care home.  Edensor Gardens leads the way by showing how important the built environment is to the future of the aged care. This collaborative effort has enabled the creation of a new model for a contemporary aged care home, demonstrating an understanding of the ongoing evolution of aged care. It has been an incredible journey for Total.

The home provides residents, families, and staff a unique combination of warmth and serenity coupled with the luxury of a boutique hotel.  Internally there are several lounge areas, dining rooms, cosy nooks, a modern cafe and bar, library, gym, a cinema and wellbeing and multi-purpose activity rooms.  External features include a sun-drenched roof top terrace leading from the cafe and bar, plus a Mediterranean themed garden courtyard.

Steve Taylor went on to say: “It’s crucial throughout the lifecycle of an aged care development, more than any other, that first and foremost, we remember that this will be someone’s home. Everything we look at is through this lens. Creating positive outcomes for our clients is a culture embedded across the whole of our organisation – it’s what drives us as a business.”

As an industry leader in Australia with over 25 years’ experience, Total, proudly takes the time to educate our teams on how the built environment of an aged care home impacts the lives of the residents, the staff and their families living in a positive way.
