2018 RCC Cadet ‘Step Up’ Award Winner

Congratulations to Olivia Rorke, winner of the 2018 RCC Cadet ‘Step Up’ Award.

The Cadet ‘Step Up’ Award promotes employee contribution and gives the lucky winner an invaluable opportunity to secure one-on-one mentoring with a member of the RCC Executive Team. Olivia’s hard work on her research paper into ‘Corporate Social Responsibility in the Construction Industry’ has earned her personal mentoring with our CEO, George Bardas.

George is looking forward to the opportunity to help Olivia shape her career within the industry they both love.

“The Step Up Award is a really valuable RCC initiative; it gives our cadets an opportunity to make a contribution to the business early in their career, by researching and preparing a paper on a new technology, market trend or innovation.

Olivia is a bright individual and a worthy recipient of this award for her submission on RCC’s Corporate Social Responsibility Strategy. Her passion and diligence is clear and I look forward to taking her on as a mentee”

George Bardas- CEO

Well done Olivia. This award is very much deserved and we look forward to hearing from yourself and George over the next 6 months!

 

SummitCare RACF Complete

RCC partnered with the SummitCare team to take aged care and retirement living to the next level with a facility that combines technology with a homely, high end hotel feel.

“To RCC, our builders, it has been an absolute pleasure, and an outstanding result. To Jamie, Rod and everyone in the Crookes team; you have been a delight to work with and I couldn’t recommend you more highly”
                                                                                    Peter Wohl, Owner at SummitCare

Our collaborative partnered approach to innovative aged care projects is evident in our delivery of the $50m Baulkham Hills SummitCare RACF facility. We were honoured to attend the grand opening of the facility to celebrate with SummitCare and the various stakeholders who contributed to the successful delivery of this quality development.

The new facility houses 236 beds for residents, a dementia centre, behavioural secure unit and specialised palliative care and includes state of the art GPON fibre optic technology, integrating the nurse call and ICT. Chada Interior Design, known for their high-end hospitality design, leveraged their experience to create a home for residences that resembles a luxury hotel, featuring bespoke custom rugs, joinery and room finishes and fixtures.

“At RCC we pride ourselves on a collaborative, client first approach, so It’s great to see our team acknowledged for the quality of their delivery as well as their attitude to working with the client team and stakeholders on the Baulkham Hills project”
                       Rod Burger, General Manager- Aged Care and Retirement Living at RCC

RCC used the Early Contractor Involvement period to design a new structural system that allowed for the use of modular bathrooms in the 186 bathrooms and worked through site issues in an effort to hand $1.5m back to the client.

Our project was delivered on time, in 18 months and has been a huge success for the wider team. RCC is proud to have been part of the delivery of one of the largest and technologically advanced RACF’s in NSW, with a focus on providing a facility that creates a home for future residents in a sustainable environment today and into the future.

As a family owned company with a strong emphasis on community, RCC understands the importance of designing and building aged care developments that contribute to social infrastructure and feel like home for residents.
