International contractor Multiplex has completed construction on the St Patrick’s Green, a $120m aged care and retirement village at 40 Chapel Street in Kogarah, Australia.

Greengate owns and operates the aged care facility, which includes three buildings set above a two-level shared basement car park. The facility will deliver a seniors community, including supported care.

The project comprises 104 independent living units, and 92 residential care suites in various configurations catering to 97 residents.

The village includes facilities such as a landscaped courtyard and colonnade, commercial kitchen and laundry, a café and terrace, theatrette, dining room, lounge, hair salon and gym, besides rehabilitation and training facilities.

St Patrick’s Green was constructed in just over a year.

As the site was in close proximity to the St Patrick’s Primary School and Church, Multiplex worked in coordination with the school authorities and implemented a coordinated materials handling plan.

St Patrick’s Green is the third integrated community project of Greengate, following the St Brigid’s Green community in Maroubra and continuing its relationship with the Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney and ANZ Bank.

Multiplex regional managing director for NSW David Ghannoum said: “We are delighted to have partnered with Greengate on this project to provide the local ageing population with an impressive blend of essential care and quality lifestyle facilities.”

Multiplex, which has a presence in Australia, the Middle East, Asia, Europe and Canada, has recently completed a Mark Moran seniors living project in Vaucluse, and is currently constructing The Terraces, an over 55’s development in Paddington.

It has also completed the $277m redevelopment of St George Hospital in Gray Street.
