The landscapes of several aged care facilities across Australia have been enhanced thanks to the installation of CastStone’s precast concrete pillar fences, which have been custom designed to suit each individual application.
CastStone has a diverse range of pillar designs – from modern Quoins to traditional and heritage – that suit all types of aged care developments. With over 36 years of manufacturing, CastStone has a range of moulds to choose from and can provide a pillar in a premade mould that already meets your specifications, or can design a custom mould to suit the space.
CastStone delivers well-packed and wrapped pallets on time with no breakages.
Check out some of CastStone’s recent aged care facility projects.
PREMIER HEALTHCARE, THE WATERFORD | HERVEY BAY QLD
The Waterford at Hervey Bay in Urraween, QLD, is a luxury aged care facility with 145 beds, purpose-built in 2017. The project cost was $30 million and took approximately 18 months to complete.
CastStone worked with the Hutchison Building Group to deliver 60 pillars that create a fence spanning the frontage. The 330-pillar range was used, which comprises of medium-sized pillars with 340mm x 340mm shafts, 480mm x 480mm bases and a larger capital. The combination of a slimmer shaft with a wider capital creates a different look to a shaft and capital that are similar dimensions.
PREMIER HEALTHCARE, THE MENZIES | PACIFIC PARADISE QLD
The Menzies at Pacific Paradise was completed in 2019 and offers short-term respite care in addition to long-term care. It’s a luxury facility with many modern facilities, large private rooms, a cinema, alfresco dining and sensory gardens. Like The Waterford, this fence needed one hundred pillars, which were designed and manufactured in Adelaide, freighted up to Queensland on specially prepared pallets and installed by Hutchinson Builders.
COPPER COAST LIFESTYLE VILLAGE | MOONTA, SA
The Copper Coast Lifestyle Village is a retirement community of 72 homes that provides retirees with a seaside lifestyle in the picturesque town of Moonta, SA.
CastStone used the 250 Series pillars along the fence line, which have a 340mm x340mm shaft and a 480mm x480mm base. For the entrance, the grander 350 Series was used to frame the signboard. The infills chosen for this project were of simple tubular steel.
ESTIA HEALTH | LOCKLEYS, SA
Estia Health in Lockleys is a modern two storey, 88-bed, high and low care facility. Kennett Builders completed this stunning property and brought in the CastStone team to deliver and install the concrete fence pillars.
The landscaped gardens were framed with a precast concrete pillar fence using the 330 pillars. A bank of concrete letterboxes were integrated into the fence with a variety of infills: tubular, concrete and sandstone.
THE PENINSULA RESIDENTIAL CARE CENTRE | KADINA, SA
The Peninsula Residential Care Centre is a high care facility situated in Kadina. For this wide frontage the 330 Series pillars were used, which feature a 340mm x340mm shaft with a 480mm x480mm base.
The pillars were mounted on a low wall and used tubular infills. The result is a stately fence that perfectly frames the nursing home.
TANUNDA LUTHERAN HOMES | BAROSSA VALLEY SA
Tanunda Lutheran Homes has 96 independent living units in a state-of-the-art residential facility, nestled in SA’s wine country, the Barossa. On site there is also a 117-bed residential aged care facility with a dedicated dementia wing.
For this development, the P Series pillars were used, which are a narrower shaft measuring 315mm x 315mm with a 460mm x 460mm base. Like Peninsular Aged Care, a low wall was installed beneath the tubular infill.
ACACIA PARK VILLAGES| Lipsett Terrace, SA
Acacia Park Villages in Lipsett Terrace is a small boutique and independent living retirement village with two- and three-bedroom villas, situated throughout Brooklyn Park in Adelaide. The properties offer privacy with many shared facilities close to Henley Beach.
The minimalist style of the Quoin precast concrete pillars were best suited to the contemporary design of these villas. The Quoins are also stackable, which means they can be as high as you need them to be.
GREENWOOD CLOISTERS | GATED COMMUNITY, SA
Not an aged care facility, but a beautiful and sought-after gated community in the Barossa. Greenwood Cloisters is a private gated community in Tanunda with access to its own parklands, surrounded by gum trees and lush gardens.
For this prestigious address, CastStone installed the 250 Series pillars with a 340mm x340mm shaft and a 480mm x480mm base. The infill was tubular steel spaced more widely with solid concrete infills at the entrance for privacy.
CastStone prides itself on taking care of the small details. While they may appear insignificant from the offset, its this attention to every aspect of the structure that makes the biggest difference to the final result.
