The heart of the village
Goodwin Aged Care Services pride themselves on creating the highest quality living environments for seniors. With an excess of 60 years’ experience, they are Canberra’s oldest and largest aged care provider.
Farrer Village by Goodwin, is a redevelopment project of the existing retirement village. The central component to this project is the newly completed Clubhouse facility.
The Clubhouse will serve as a social hub for residents where they can partake in village activities, meet with friends and family, and maintain an exciting social calendar. A thoughtfully designed facility that includes a library, theatre, billiards room, activity rooms, dining area, commercial kitchen and a licensed café.
The glazing is a particular feature of the building. Taylor's Window Supplies optimised the glazing through the project using a White Vantage® and Elevate™ aluminium window and door system.
Taylors ensured all glazing was Section J compliant and in addition, all fixed windows were double glazed units, using the SOLOS KlymetControl® range of Low E Glass that will further support the thermal comfort of the building.
The Clubhouse, the heart of Farrer Village, provides an up to date living environment for seniors, supporting local residents to stay within their community as their needs change.
Construction work on the next phases continues and the entire village is expected to be ready by mid 2021.
