Making Crowley Buildings Great

Crowley is creating beautiful new purpose built buildings and spaces with special design features tailored to our residents’ lifestyle. 

It’s all  part of our vision to create inspirational living experiences.

This development has one overriding aim for our Ballina site – to improve the quality of life for our residents, staff and broader Crowley community.

Beginning with the creation of some unique new buildings, we are redeveloping some existing buildings to better capitalise on our site’s natural beauty, aspect and water views.

The development provides more living and social spaces for our residents and a better working environment for our staff.

It incorporates community areas to relax in and spaces for everyone to enjoy.  And it features improved landscaping and wayfinding.

To achieve this we have employed the services of Bickerton Masters Architecture – a team experienced in creating quality spaces for the care services industry.
