Le Pine Dandenong is seen as a flagship location for the InvoCare brand; one of Australia’s largest funeral home service providers.
The redevelopment of the existing building saw three quarters of the structure demolished and an increase to the structure’s footprint. New function space, a chapel, consultation rooms and offices were built to allow InvoCare to operate all functions of the funeral process from the one location.
The project was an exciting challenge for the team, with the structure of the building being held up by laminated glulam timber that was left exposed to add warmth throughout the finished building. The chapel had new 8 metre vaulted ceilings, with full-height glazing to the back of the chapel, allowing a flood of natural light throughout the space, as well as great viewing of the manicured landscaping throughout the back garden.
InvoCare noted that this building will stand as an example for their business and we are proud to have delivered it alongside them.
