Rawhiti Es­tate suc­ceeds bowl­ing club

Central Leader - - LIFESTYLE & LEISURE -

Af­ter a cen­tury of op­er­a­tion, the Rawhiti Bowl­ing Club is mak­ing way for Re­muera’s new­est bou­tique re­tire­ment vil­lage: Rawhiti Es­tate.

The bowl­ing club en­joyed a rich his­tory with Re­muera locals un­til num­bers started to fall in re­cent years. The bowl­ing club was sub­se­quently put on the mar­ket and sold to BeGroup. The pro­ceeds were paid to Auck­land Bowls who dis­trib­uted the funds to ben­e­fit other bowl­ing clubs in the re­gion.

The team at BeGroup were ea­ger to pick up from where the Rawhiti Bowl­ing Club left off, with the be­lief of cre­at­ing a last­ing as­set and home for the el­derly of Re­muera. The vi­sion for Rawhiti Es­tate is cen­tred around bou­tique res­i­den­tial care for the el­derly which matches the com­mu­nity val­ues and de­sign of the area.

Rawhiti Es­tate has been ar­chi­tec­turally de­signed to fit seam­lessly into the Re­muera com­mu­nity. This pur­pose­ful de­sign repli­cates much of the typ­i­cal ar­chi­tec­ture of the area. The de­sign has been care­fully crafted around the con­cept of cre­at­ing small neigh­bour­hoods, where peo­ple can con­trib­ute to and feel part of a vil­lage com­mu­nity.

The fa­cil­i­ties in­clude ex­ten­sive com­mon ar­eas, an atrium gar­den, heated swim­ming pool, spa pool, beauty salon, theatre and a hub that trans­forms from a cof­fee lounge to a bar at cocktail hour.

Au­gust with the help of Ar­gon Con­struc­tion who have been com­mis­sioned by BeGroup to build the re­tire­ment vil­lage. The team at Ar­gon have a strong rep­u­ta­tion for their qual­ity work­man­ship as well as a strong com­mit­ment to health and safety.

Cur­rently Ar­gon Con­struc­tion are strip­ping the soil and work­ing on ex­ca­va­tions. The next few months will see the as­so­ci­ated in­fras­truc­ture be put in place in­clud­ing con­crete, ser­vices and water treat­ment. The build of Rawhiti Es­tate will be com­pleted by July 2018.

Rawhiti Es­tate is the first de­sign-and-build fa­cil­ity for BeGroup and will in­clude 27 lux­ury in­de­pen­dent liv­ing apart­ments, and 68 pre­mium resthome, de­men­tia and hos­pi­tal-level care rooms. BeGroup are now sell­ing the in­de­pen­dent liv­ing apart­ments, and as ex­pected, the re­sponse has been fan­tas­tic.
