Maroba Manor

Newcastle, NSW

Maroba Manor is an aged care facility providing 100 resident bedrooms in a stylish and comfortable setting. Conveying the feeling of a resort or hotel, Maroba Manor challenges preconceived notions of what an aged care facility can be. Committed to creating a healthy and functional building for staff and residents, Maroba’s aim was to integrate cost effective sustainable principles and strategies into the design, resulting in a model aged care development.

Numerous environmental strategies are incorporated into the development, including an 81,000 litre water harvesting system for use in toilets and irrigation, a building monitoring system, mixed mode ventilation system, double glazed windows and high performance solar film, fixed sun shading devices, efficient lighting and controls, solar hot water system and kitchen and server dishwashers with heat recovery.
