St Georges Health Service – Berengarra RACF
Berengarra 90-Bed Aged Care is a new residential facility located behind St Georges Hospital in Kew. The name Berengarra means “The land around Kew”. The Victorian government worked with St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne to build the facility and Redback Procurement facilitated the tendering process, with Healthcare Furniture Australia being successful in the furniture fit-out for the comfortable home-like environment within this modern facility.
The three floors of the building replicate each other with a central spine leading to four distinct bedroom corridors with domestic style kitchens fitted out to cater for each wing.
HFA delivered the furniture with full placement to the designated areas, during COVID-19 Stage 4, with all precautions fulfilled to make for a smooth, safe and timely installation.
In the 90 bedrooms, we had out three-drawer bedside cabinets finished in Laminex Avignon Walnut, with four timber legs stained to match. The chairs in the bedrooms were alternated between our high-back Flinders armchair with the inbuilt lumbar support and our Seville square-style armchair.
HFA manufactured some non-standard cabinets for the lounge rooms to meet storage requirements. Each one designed slightly differently – some with doors opening to both sides for easy access to make for a neat room divider at the same time.
The lovely outdoor areas were complimented with the Dolce light stackable chair, Avila coffee table bases and four-leg dining tables that both have Genatas Duratop marble-look tops.
