Rubicon Grove

Port Sorell, Tasmania

OneCare’s $5.6 million Rubicon Grove Redevelopment encompassed the construction of a new 20-bed wing, and a community facility with tea house cafe and al fresco dining, at Rubicon Grove aged care facility in Port Sorell, Tasmania. Works also included renovations to the kitchen and laundry, and an extension to the existing carpark.

The community facility is open to the public, with a wide range of community groups encouraged to use the meeting rooms and cafe, with the aim of creating an open and inviting environment with the residents, and a close-knit Port Sorell community.

The new areas have been designed to match the “country club” style of the original buildings, with options for solar panels being assessed, and environmentally sustainable design principles being taken into consideration across the project.
