Warrigal will deliver a much needed lift to the Illawarra economy via their innovative new retirement and aged care community at Shell Cove.
With site works due to commence in July the Warrigal Shell Cove project will provide 366 jobs during construction injecting $43.3 million into the local economy. Upon completion a further 128 permanent direct care jobs will contribute to a further economic output of $166.6 million.
A $17M boost to funding awarded by the Restart Illawarra NSW Infrastructure Fund will assist construction of a much needed residential care home, and community facilities for older people. The new village will also provide a range of accessible services for older people in the region, and plays a significant part in the new Shell Cove Marina precinct.
Warrigal’s brand new Shell Cove community incorporates high thermal performance glazing and building fabric throughout to achieve a 6 star NatHERS rating (National House Energy Rating Scheme, guaranteeing each dwelling provides both a high degree of thermal comfort and energy efficiency.
Pursuant to Warrigal’s Environmentally Sustainable Design Standard the new community also features energy efficient LED lighting, rainwater tanks to collect water for use in gardens and toilet flushing, solar photovoltaic systems and is orientated to make use of prevailing winds and local climatic conditions.
This ensures that the buildings have been designed to be not only functional but will be comfortable in all seasons with minimal, if any, heating and cooling required.
Warrigal CEO Mark Sewell announced “Warrigal Shell Cove will be an exciting place for older people who grant us the privilege of offering them support through all the stages of their lives, and represents a significant milestone in the evolution of our organisation.
We are proud to be setting new benchmarks in quality, innovation and sustainability with this project.”
