We are pleased to announce that our redevelopment project in Loxton has commenced.
“This project will see Orana supporting more clients in the Riverland area, providing a new home to call their own. “Jim Liu, Orana CEO
The new development features an administration and common building. It consists of three bedrooms, each equipped with its own ensuite. Additionally, there is a shared kitchen, living and dining area, a dedicated laundry, and an office space Orana staff. These buildings are part of the first phase of the development and are scheduled to be completed by the end of 2023.
Phase two of this project will involve the construction of two additional custom-built independent living homes. Each home has three bedrooms, each with its own personal ensuite. Additionally, there are shared communal spaces and rear gardens available for all residents to enjoy. Every home is designed with our clients in mind, ensuring complete accessibility.
Phase two is expected to be completed by March 2024, with landscaping finalised by mid-2024.
“We’re proud to be able to update and modernise our current Supported Independent Living homes to continue to provide a fantastic experience and level of support for our clients.”Rebecca Ellis, Executive Manager, Community Services.
Once completed, the redevelopment will be able to accommodate additional SIL clients from the Riverland in contemporary SDA approved housing. The area where the existing accommodation buildings are located will be cleared and landscaped to provide additional garden and communal meeting areas for the Bookpurnong Rd residents.
The local company, Handbuilt Homes Riverland, is undertaking the construction and management of these homes. In recent years, Handbuilt Homes has received multiple awards from HIA for their exceptional outcomes and construction projects throughout the Riverland and its surrounding areas.
