5 story development to replace tired inner city aged care facility

August 20, 2020

Today signified the commencement of the Berlasco Court project, with General Manager, Brett Johnston officially signing the contract alongside The Ethnic Communities Council of Queensland CEO, Peter Last and Board Chair, Alton Budd. This home, for 115 residents has been 6 years in the making, with Paynters commencing schematic design ideas to reflect the Board’s vision in 2014.

The exciting new development will commence in the heart of Indooroopilly, bringing significant benefits for older people from both the local and broader communities. The richness that comes from a multicultural environment, such as Berlasco Court, will embody a revitalised life with the new five storey development to replace the original Berlasco Court facility.

This project, under the auspices of The Ethnic Communities Council of Queensland (ECCQ), has been very carefully planned over some years. Working closely with the Paynters design and construction team, the Board’s steering committee has been dedicated to ensuring that the current reputation for Berlasco Court’s care and service excellence remains the driver for the building design and fit-out.

The Paynters team were chosen for their reputation for design innovation and a willingness to engage and respond to a changing aged care landscape; one that gives older people confidence and choices for how they wish to live their life, respecting their cultural background and support for a dignified and fulfilling life. The same Paynters team have been on the journey with the ECCQ Steering Committee since the inception of the project and we look to continuing this journey with the Berlasco team!
