Lyndoch Living's Masterplan

More than aged care – the future of change and growth.

Lyndoch Living’s Masterplan builds on our forefather’s passion and vision to extend services to provide our community with a range of care, health and wellbeing options.

As an independent provider of integrated care and health services, Lyndoch Living’s Primary Healthcare Precinct expands the opportunities for our community to access health, wellbeing and care services, and supports both Lyndoch’s Masterplan and the Warrnambool City Council’s W2040 vision to build an age-friendly community.

The Royal Commission into Aged Care Quality and Safety recommended that health care should be integrated into aged care for better resident outcomes. The Royal Commission also stated that the aged care system will need a secure and sustainable source of funding. In its determination to not be reliant on government funding alone, Lyndoch Living’s Primary Healthcare Precinct is a shared value initiative that will not only create value for our community, but also create economic value for Lyndoch Living and other participating businesses.

Technology, innovation and research were other areas identified to assist in building and retaining a workforce that will meet the aged care and social assistance sectors’ future needs. The new building will host spaces for innovation, education and events. This will compliment Lyndoch’s current partnerships and investments in supporting and growing its workforce, food innovation, research projects and other community activities.

Supporting people to live independently fosters positive attitudes, dignity, social, mental and physical wellbeing. It has a beneficial impact on our communities and society when people live independently and meaningful lives irrespective of age. Residents, team members, clients and the broader south-west community will have access to:

  • Doctors
  • Pharmacy
  • Pathology
  • Dental health care
  • Preventative holistic care, and
  • social spaces.

Primary Healthcare Precinct – Did you know?

  • The building is designed to be environmentally friendly and dementia enabling. It uses CLT (cross-laminated timber), a solid natural, sustainable product made in Australia with a low carbon footprint, which is also recyclable.
  • Other energy-efficient items include solar panels, lighting, specialized glazing, therapeutic courtyards and open transitional spaces.
  • So far, 8680m3 of excavated material has been donated to a local farm for recycling, and approximately 1,176 tons of concrete and 44 tons of steel have been used.

We’d like to that the following organisations, who are part of the essential service team, managing the first stage of the design and construction of this infrastructure project:

  • AWNicholson
  • Marchese Partners
  • Duggan Civil
  • Critech
  • Western District Crane Services

What’s next?

  • Finalising of the installation of precast concrete panels
  • Completion of in-ground services
  • Concrete ground slabs
  • Design of timber structural elements


Keep tuning in for the latest photos and information as the building progresses.
