The very best in residential aged care

Carmelite in Adelaide is competing in three categories in the 2020 Property Council of Australia / Rider Levett Bucknall Innovation & Excellence Awards; Best Mixed Use Development, Best Residential Development, and Development Innovation.

The facility serves as a leading example of discreetly providing independent and supported living in a contemporary setting, which has a Health and Wellness Centre and Café at its heart.

‘Featuring premium retirement living apartments and residential aged-care rooms, Carmelite shows how independent and supported living can work together,’ says RLB’s Managing Director in South Australia John Drillis.

Carmelite is nominated and owned by Southern Cross Care and designed by Walterbrooke with commercial certainty provided by RLB led by the firm’s Managing Director in South Australia John Drilis.

RLB has partnered with the Property Council of Australia to present the Innovation & Excellence Awards program since its inception in 1982.

A NEW DATE is coming soon for the 2020 Gala Dinner.
