The redevelopment of Campbell Place aged care facility incorporated a number of welcoming communal spaces and included the installation of a series of Christie modular barbecues to provide a reliable and safe outdoor cooking option for the residents.
Australian Unity’s Campbell Place aged care facility in Glen Waverley, Southeast Melbourne, was recently redeveloped. With over 30 years of specialist experience in seniors living accommodation, acclaimed architecture firm, Thomson Adsett, redesigned the then-named Wahroonga Friendship Village. During this process, the village was renamed to Campbell Place, after former CEO, Murray Campbell.
A warm and welcoming environment, the Campbell Place retirement facility has a total of 102 beds and 54 independent living apartments. Independent residents have exclusive access to premium onsite facilities including a gym, library, hair and beauty salon, meeting rooms, landscape gardens and communal barbecue and dining areas.
To provide the safest, simplest and most reliable cooking solution for elderly residents, Thomson Adsett specified Christie modular barbecue units and ample dining facilities for all communal barbecue areas. Christie’s patented modular barbecues offer an ideal solution for most public open spaces, including retirement villages. With their proven reliability, emphasis on safety, hygiene, ease-of-use and market-leading cooking performance, Christie’s barbecues were the clear choice.
Christie’s modular barbecues can be expanded to create extra bench space or additional barbecue and cleaning facilities by combing commercial-grade cooktops or sink modules and can be further customised by selecting from a range of standard colours and materials. This flexibility allows specifiers to create a simple, elegant solution that is compact, easy to operate and maintain, and durable enough to withstand harsh environments and continued use.
At the core of all Christie barbecues is their award-wining CC2 gas and electric cooktops. The culmination of more than 50 years of product development and an unwavering dedication to safety and reliability, they contain many features developed exclusively by Christie, including a sterilisation cycle, pre-set temperature and cooking times, and delayed start function for added peace of mind.
Christie also offers a comprehensive range of options and accessories, backed by their iron clad warranty and industry-leading after sales service and product support.
