Fraser Coast, let's get serious about seniors

The hugely successful Heads Up: Ageing in Place event held in Brisbane earlier this year is coming to the Fraser Coast in September. Held at the Hervey Bay RSL, the event will help you rethink the type of housing you are delivering.

If you’re planning your next project, you can’t afford to miss this event. You’ll get the inside word on the needs and wants of this market that are set to have a major impact on all future residential projects.

Informed by findings from the Institute’s Research Foundation, proudly presented by Construction Skills Queensland, we’ve brought together industry experts to share valuable insights. Hear firsthand from:

  • Director at Deicke Richards, John Deicke
  • Major Capital Works Manager at Blue Care, Warren Harris
  • Executive Director of Regional and Residential Development at Economic Development Queensland, Andrew Sly.

Our industry experts will discuss:

  • Understanding the housing expectations and needs of our ageing population
  • How to house this market segment in suitable accommodation
  • How to integrate appropriate housing for an ageing population within our existing and established suburbs while offering diverse and flexible housing choices.
  • What changes are needed to current regulations to enable the industry to deliver more suitable housing choices for our ageing population
  • How we can integrate care services (from low-care to high-care) into our new and existing communities, and the care considerations necessary from a project planning perspective.
