Extension to an existing aged care facility


Total were proud to handover this project for the construction of an extension to Tabulam + Templer Homes for the Aged.

Set amongst abundant trees and with unrivalled views of the Dandenong Ranges, TTHA’s new Sarona wing comprises 56 resident bedrooms, a commercial kitchen, dining rooms and lounge rooms, outdoor decks and basement car parking.

The existing building façade received a facelift with a full re-clad to meet and increase fire rating requirements. Works also included for the conversion/ refurbishment of an existing resident lounge to two new bedrooms.

The construction of a new café for the residents and public to enjoy completed the works.

Chairman Paul English commented ‘… Total’s co-operation in minimising disturbance to residents was appreciated. Positive and regular communication between Total, the Architect and TTHA ensured an excellent project outcome with the project on budget and our residents and staff all enjoying the new facility. Total’s co-operation in observing strict site COVID 19 rules was very much appreciated’.


The construction program was developed to best manage the works and ensure minimal disruption to the residents, staff and visitors frequenting the home, and ensuring maximum bed numbers throughout the construction period.
