ratio: have recently obtained planning approval for a state of the art TLC Aged Care facility in Armstrong Creek, an urban growth area within the City of Greater Geelong.
The site is located on Surf Coast Highway within the Armstrong Creek Precinct Structure Plan Area, and abuts Stewarts Road which forms a key pedestrian and cycle link through Armstrong Creek known as the Stewarts Road Greenway.
The two storey facility, designed by Baldasso Cortese Architects, will accommodate 180 beds, pharmacy, café, GP clinic, physiotherapy, hydrotherapy pool, mobile radiology, pathology, tele-health and other allied health services for both residents and patients from the local community. This integrated design is key to TLC Aged Care’s innovative model which focusses on a holistic approach to aged care in a modern and supportive environment.
ratio: worked closely with Greater Geelong Council, VicRoads and surrounding developers to ensure that the design of the facility sat comfortably within the emerging neighbourhood, and integrated with the Stewarts Road Greenway. This consultative approach resulted in the granting of a planning permit by Council in May 2016.
ratio: are excited to have been a part of this project which will deliver world class aged care services.
