The award, which Hall & Prior shares with the award-winning architect team at Hassell, was presented to the Karingal Green team at the WA development industry’s night of nights held at Crown Perth on the weekend.
The UDIA is the peak body representing all segments of the urban development industry and as such, winning the award for excellence in the Seniors Living category 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.
Competition was fierce in the various categories; the prestigious awards program is widely regarded as the pinnacle for the urban development industry in terms of achievement in community creation, innovation and sustainability.
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 have sought to provide their residents with an excellent quality of lifestyle.
