Funeral home refurbishment
8 weeks
APP & Invocare
Construction Management

Rork Projects were engaged by APP on behalf of Invocare to refurbish their existing funeral home at the seaside suburb of Wynnum. Works took place before Christmas and were completed early in the new year in preparation for workers returning to carry out services for their clients. The works consisted of a full demolition and strip out of the existing facility and then constructing a brand new chapel and cool room, amenities, a new commercial kitchen and event room. Spacious consultation rooms were also completed along with a brand new reception area to welcome guests. Externally, Rork Projects also completed façade upgrades, roof upgrades and installation of sky lights, as well as line markings of the existing car parking bays.

Brand new services were also installed in line with the new upgraded finishes. All electrical, mechanical and hydraulic services were installed so all rooms were fully functional to carry out services for the funeral home’s clients. New security services and audio visual elements were also installed to create the finishing touches. All works were completed on an accelerated program to ensure the facility was operational as soon as possible to recommence service.

As an Indigenous business, we proudly acknowledge that this project was completed on the traditional lands of the Yuggera, Turrbal, Noonucal, Goenpul, and Yugembah Nations.
