This particular facility was entirely brand new, following the demolition of an existing community hall of great local history. The heritage stone work from the old hall was removed carefully so it could be reused in the new building as a feature wall in the entrance. Leadlight windows from the church part of the hall were also kept and reused. When the demolition occurred, the team uncovered a time capsule buried in the 1800’s. Elements found within were incorporated as features throughout the finished building.

The finished two-storey facility contains 71 bedrooms with ensuites,
a hair salon, full commercial kitchen and laundry, community hall/church
and four large dining rooms.

Multiple additions to the original scope were added by the client and architect throughout the project. Good collaboration by BADGE with the subcontractors allowed these to be incorporated without significant impact on completion times which were already delayed due to high rainfall in the area.

This project continues the positive relationship between BADGE and Resthaven Inc, especially after delivering a very pleasing project under budget.
