Construction of Woburn Apartments Underway

DECEMBER 2013


Construction is underway on the first of two stages of the new Woburn Apartments for the Masonic Villages Trust in Lower Hutt. The apartments will complement their existing aged care rest home and hospital facilities which have operated from the site for 40 years.

Stage 1 comprises of 47 self-contained apartments with support facilities such as a reception and administration area, bar and café, central conservatory, men's shed and under-cover parking. All the apartments have been designed to accommodate people with limited mobility and will have views towards the Hutt River, Wellington City or the Tararua Ranges.

Once completed (Stage 2 is due to be finished at the beginning of 2018) the complex will contain a total of 86 independent-living apartments in a variety of one, two or three bedroom configurations ranging from 55-112 square metres.

Work is progressing well on site with Armstrong Downes Commercial employed as the main contractor.
