NRCH Grounds Renewal Project


NRCH’s Grounds Renewal Project will improve health and wellness outcomes for the community and the work soon to be underway directly responds to feedback asking us to improve the grounds surrounding our facility.

Based on engagements conducted to date, our design team drafted plans that improved the landscaping and facilities surrounding NRCH’s buildings so we can provide care, support and services for clients and community in a more inviting and supported outdoor space.

NRCH staff will be able to support everyone who comes to our facility, from the moment they enter our precinct, to the moment they leave.

The project improves the way external spaces are used to provide additional services and support for the whole community.

The draft landscape plans were presented for feedback through several community and stakeholder consultation activities in 2022.

Following delays due to COVID-19 and the rising cost of construction, the project has recommenced, and construction is scheduled to start in early 2024.
