Hall & Prior’s Karingal Green Health and Aged Care facility in High Wycombe has won the Senior Living category of the UDIA WA awards.
Hall & Prior shares with the award-winning architect team at Hassell Studio.
The UDIA is the peak body representing all segments of the urban development industry. Winning the Senior Living award for excellence caps an incredible journey for Karingal Green and all those who have contributed to its success.
Hall & Prior CEO Graeme Prior said the award was recognition of more than a decade of hard work.
“Receiving this award is a fantastic achievement for the Karingal Green team and I congratulate them on their hard work and dedication to the project,” Mr Prior said.
“Karingal Green is a new concept for aged care in Perth and means that Western Australians now have access to world class aged care services in their community.
“I am grateful for the unwavering support that Karingal Green received from so many individuals, organisations and Government at all levels. In addition, the support of our community partners, the City of Kalamunda, Activ Foundation Inc and the Western Australian State Government was integral to the success of this project.
“I am immensely proud of our team and a very big thank you must go to Hassell for making our vision a reality.”
The award winners and finalists represent the very best urban development projects delivered within Western Australia, and are reflective of the growth of best practices and industry as a whole.
According to the judges, Karingal Green demonstrates excellence across every aspect of the facility, “truly lifting the bar for aged care”. Residents are provided unprecedented quality and amenity, as they transition to a higher care environment with modern health and clinic facilities along with a wellness centre, heated hydrotherapy pool and gym.
From the entrance café all the way through to the hair salon, no detail has been overlooked, as the project team has sought to provide their residents with an excellent quality of lifestyle.
Karingal Green was designed by award-winning international architects Hassell Studio and built by Broad Construction.
Update: Also in 2021, Karingal Green was also named the ‘Best Mixed-Use Development’ by the Property Council of Australia (Western Australia Chapter) and also earned the ‘Ageing in Place’ award at the WINconnect Apartment Awards for Excellence.
