Adventist Care’s Australis Rossmoyne Waters apartment development has been recognised with an award from the state’s pre-eminent construction industry body, Master Builders WA.

The project won the Best Seniors/Aged Persons Multi-Unit Development $20-$50 million Award at the 2019 Master Builders-Bankwest Excellence in Construction Awards.

“We commend Adventist Care CEO Gary Blagden and his dedicated team in allowing us to guide this award-winning project through a design competition, which delivered quality outcomes both functionally and aesthetically,” project management company NS Projects director Stewart Greensmith said.

“This extended to appointing a trusted builder in PACT Construction, who have always put the client first and delivered consistent quality that has resulted in positive outcomes for residents.”

PACT Construction general manager Jason Kunkler said the team at PACT was absolutely thrilled to win the award.

“To be recognised as the best in the industry in this category is an absolute honour and testament to our dedication to construction excellence and our unique ‘hands-on’ approach with our clients,” he said.

Former Wheatbelt and lately Dalyellup, near Bunbury, beachside homeowners Peter and Barbara Silinger said life at Rossmoyne Waters Australis was like living in a stylish resort.

“We realised it was time to be closer to major health services and family but location and lifestyle were still very important,” they said.

“We wanted to be near public transport, the freeway and good shopping choices too.”

Barbara added: “After researching options, we decided an apartment was best and the moment we saw Australis, we knew it was home.”

“We feel like we’re on permanent holiday; it’s one of the best decisions of our lives,” Peter said.

Both ex-teachers, they remain active in their 70s.

While they both exercise in the gym, Barbara also enjoys tai chi and is on the library committee.

Peter is heavily engaged in WA’s cricket scene at the WACA.

The Silingers said the warmth, diversity and inclusivity at Rossmoyne Waters was very attractive, as was the comparatively small size of the community, with only 86 residences in the complex.

Australis Rossmoyne Waters has proved the perfect option for recent retirees Peter and Barbara Silinger.

“The residents and staff are lovely; it just feels like an extended family environment,” Barbara said.

Peter added: “For $625,000, Barbara and I have achieved great value.

“The balconies are like having an extra room, the views are stunning and we are very happy with the finish in the complex and apartments.

“The amenities, from the pool, which our grandkids love, to the gym, mini-golf, bowling green and village workshop, really are suitable for people of our age.

“When family and friends see the cafe, lounge, library and games areas, they all say it’s just like a high-class resort.

“And the fact that everything’s under the one roof, from carpark to apartment balcony, makes a big difference.”

Barbara added: “It does not matter what the weather is, we’re covered, literally; it’s really advantageous for ageing residents.

“The apartments are life-long-lease with three choices of Deferred Management Fee and we chose the Advantage option, but they all have merit depending on your circumstances.”

Peter recommended people do their homework.

“But the good thing here is we’ve had no financial surprises; everything has been spelled out very clearly and it’s worked out wonderfully,” he said.

With Stage One now more than half sold, interest in the remaining 31 two- and three-bedroom apartments, from $475,000-$845,000, is heightening.

“We’re encouraging people to reach out to our village manager Daniel Gallop now and experience the complex’s apartments and amenities first-hand,” Mr Blagden said.

“We’re crafting a harmonious, positive community here and we’re doing it in style.”
