Finding your way: through construction!

Presentation Overview
"Where the wheels nearly fell off… A case study on the refurbishment of Three Tree Lodge, Lithgow.

Three Tree Lodge’s dementia-wing extension benefited from a champion who saw it through from conception to occupation, but it hasn’t all been easy! When Three Trees landed federal funding to deliver the 8 bed extension perhaps no one quite knew the challenging journey that would be in store. From managing the loops and hoops of funding bodies, unifying the minds of board members, kerbing the long-worn habits of the care staff, navigating the intimidating process of selecting the right builder, winning their hearts, and then constructing the project with the existing residents on the other side of thin temporary wall: hear about potential pitfalls of getting a project “out of the ground”, the way in which we navigated them, and the surprising and exciting results on the other side.
