Thexton Smith is excited to announce we have just obtained another planning permit for one of our fantastic clients. Consisting of a ground level reception, café, gym, hydrotherapy pool and level 1 medical centre in an existing Aged Care facility, this inviting architectural project will give a fresh face to the existing building, and provide residents with additional amenity and activities to keep them active and healthy. Congratulations to our client on this achievement, we look forward to the next steps of the project.
