Elanora Uniting Care Aged Care Facility, Shellharbour
This stylish and spacious aged care facility is fully equipped with all the amenities and modern conveniences residents, staff and visitors need. Elanora is home to up to 100 residents, offering comfort, companionship and convenience.
The project was designed with environmental sustainability in mind. By using external James Hardie Matrix fibre cement cladding it was possible to create a sleek contemporary finish with optimal thermal mass and energy efficiency. Alongside this, Big River also supplied formwork and several other building materials (such as Truform LVL, timber mouldings and structural plywood) customised for the project.
