Tom Price Elderly Complex


The Tom Price Elderly Complex project will deliver an elderly accommodation complex in Tom Price, consisting of self-contained residential units designed specifically for the needs of elderly Gumala Members.

The proposed complex will consist of a mix of one and two bed units, a day centre, caretaker’s residence and landscaped communal areas. The complex will accommodate up to 14 elderly GAC Members.

Costing studies were undertaken by consultants in 2012, who provided estimates based upon ‘in situ construction’ and ‘transportable’ delivery methods using the original layout plan and design detail provided by an architectural firm. Gumala then commissioned an architectural firm and civil engineering firm to undertake the development of design guidelines and site master planning.

GAC has also taken the opportunity to consult with Gumala Members and key stakeholders.
