MSWA is delighted to announce the appointment of Devlyn Construction as the chosen contractor for the development of its cutting-edge high-support accommodation facility in Shenton Park, Perth.
In collaboration with the State Government, a joint investment of $26.8m has been secured to bring this essential project to fruition.
MSWA’s Manager of Property Development, Steve Corbett, said “Devlyn Construction's 20 years of industry expertise, coupled with their commitment to quality, make them the ideal partner for this project. We anticipate achieving a world-class facility with Devlyn Construction's proven expertise.
- 20-unit facility to provide long-term high-support accommodation in Shenton Park.
- Construction is scheduled to commence in early 2024, targeting completion by 2026.
- Together, MSWA and the State Government have committed $26.8m to the project.
The 20-unit facility is designed to provide long-term, high-support accommodation for adults living with spinal cord injuries or neurological conditions in a nurturing environment.
MSWA will oversee the facility's operations, providing round-the-clock care through its dedicated team of healthcare professionals. The facility will prioritise accommodating the remaining long-term Quadriplegic Centre Clients, who have been consulted throughout the development process.
After years of meticulous planning, MSWA is thrilled to embark on this significant infrastructure project, expanding its footprint to 22 facilities dedicated to supporting individuals with neurological conditions across the state.
MSWA CEO, Melanie Kiely, was proud to partner with the State Government to deliver this important project.
“We are pleased the State Government shares our vision to provide the best possible home in this high-support accommodation facility for residents of the Quadriplegic Centre and other West Australians impacted by neurological conditions and spinal cord injury.”
“Our team is eagerly focused on delivering the world-class center our future residents want and deserve as quickly as possible. We extend our gratitude to the Department of Health and the West Australian Government for partnering with us to deliver on our commitment and acknowledge our MSWA community supporters without whom this impactful investment would not be possible."
