Distinguished builder and developer Ravida Group has won a coveted National Award at the annual Master Builders Australia National Excellence in Building and Construction Awards which were announced in the Gold Coast over the weekend.
Ravida was awarded the 2011 Department of Health and Ageing National Lifestyle Housing for Seniors Award for its stunning retirement project ‘Renaissance Living’.
The award was sponsored by the Australian Government’s Department of Health and Ageing and is Ravida’s second MBA award in three years.
Located in the leafy suburb of Surrey Hills in Melbourne’s east, Renaissance Living has set a new benchmark for independent retirement living since it opened earlier this year.
Designed by JAM, this purpose-built development boasts 43 apartments over five levels, and each of the one, two and three bedroom offerings features a fully equipped kitchen, secure basement car park, private balcony or courtyard and access to the building’s plethora of on-site amenities that are akin to a boutique hotel.
The building’s many facilities include a central courtyard, vegetable garden, reception lounge, library, private dining room, meeting rooms, a guest apartment, billiards room, licensed bar and commercial kitchen/restaurant, as well as a pool, gym, hydro-bath and consulting rooms.
Designed with the quality and luxury that is synonymous with this multi-award-winning developer, Renaissance Living also showcases the very finest quality fittings, furnishes and materials.
Ravida Group’s managing director, Don Ravida, said the award was a milestone achievement for the developer and a testament to the quality of the project.
“It’s always an honour to receive any award, but to receive this national award from such a well-respected industry body in conjunction with the Federal Government Department of Health and Ageing is even more humbling. This is Ravida’s first foray into retirement living so receiving this award reinforces both the quality of the project and the talent of the team behind it. Renaissance Living has raised the bar for practicality, quality and luxury design, which is something we work hard to instill within every Ravida development,” he said.
