Following an in-depth review and competitive tender process, IRT has selected RGD Group to construct stage one of its new $40million IRT Woodlands retirement community at Meridan Plains, Sunshine Coast, Queensland.  IRT Woodlands will consist of a 60-suite care centre and 107 lifestyle villas.

Stage One of construction is already underway with $20 million to be spent on the site’s infrastructure, care centre, 20 lifestyle villas, a community hall and swimming pool.

RGD Group’s Director Ron Grabbe said that RGD was privileged to be working with one of Australia’s largest community based seniors' lifestyle and care providers.
The IRT Woodlands construction contract complements a number of residential and commercial projects that RGD is constructing for other clients throughout Queensland.
"To be able to construct this new community on the Sunshine Coast for IRT is a great honour and a great addition to the current portfolio of jobs we have in progress,” Mr Grabbe said.   
IRT Group Chief Executive, Nieves Murray  is delighted the organisation's first care centre in Queensland is being constructed by a local organisation.
“Over the two-year expected construction period we anticipate RGD to employ between 150 - 200 local contractors and sub-contractors at any given time,” she said.

IRT Woodlands is part of a $170 million IRT capital works program currently underway across Australia's eastern seaboard. The entire project is due for completion in late 2016.

In 2012 IRT Group acquired three lifestyle communities in south-east Queensland and a greenfield site (where IRT Woodlands is located) after identifying the need to provide world-class aged care in the region.
“Over the next 20 years an extra 56,100 retirees are expected to live on the Sunshine Coast," Ms Murray said.
“This new community forms a critical part of our $75m south-eastern Queensland strategy which will not only address that demand but set a new standard in purpose-designed, quality accommodation for people in need of both full-time care and independent lifestyle villas.”
