Land, location challenges for architects’ aged care builds

Aged care and retirement living projects are replacing office buildings and apartment complexes on the drawing boards of architecture firms across Western Australia, as increasing demand for beds stokes intense competition among providers.

Across Australia, the provision of funding for aged care facilities is regulated by the federal government, which allocates capital annually.

According to the latest data from the federal Department of Health, there were 17,385 new aged care places allocated across Australia in 2015, with 1,698 of those in WA.
