Independent Living Units – Toodyay
PDA has successfully delivered a portfolio of Independent Living Units (ILU’s) around the Toodyay and Victoria Plains region in WA for the Butterly Cottages Association (Inc), and three different Local councils. Siteworks involving extensive retaining walls and in-ground services were completed as Early Works, to achieve a streamlined delivery programme.
In order to achieve a more commercially attractive tender scope for contractors, PDA planned the Toodyay ILU’s together with ILU’s in Bolgart, Calingiri and Goomalling, 17x ILU’s in total. This strategy delivered this Aged Care project well below budget, and provided much needed accommodation for elderly citizens of a four regional towns, where it has been historically difficult attracting contractors.
Project Directors Australia (PDA) managed the entire $6m project in conjunction with the Shires of Toodyay, Victoria Plains and Goomalling with a staged completion throughout mid 2018.
