Paynters won the Community Accommodation for Aged Care and Nursing Homes category of the 2022 Downs and Western Housing and Construction Awards.

Carinity’s Executive Manager of Business and Development, Peter Lamberth, congratulated Paynters on the award win.

“We are delighted that Paynters has been recognised for its stellar work in bringing to life Carinity’s vision for a modern residential aged care community which best meets the care needs of Darling Downs seniors,” Peter said.

A companion community for the Carinity Brownesholme retirement village located next door, The Residences at Brownesholme was designed with a country feel and opened in 2021.

The $32-million residential aged care community has beautiful country homestead features, courtyards, gardens, lounges with gas fireplaces, and country-themed bric-a-brac.

After the construction component of the building project was completed, Paynters provided the full commission of furniture, fixtures and equipment for the 96-bed aged care site near Toowoomba.


As well as building The Residences at Brownesholme, Paynters provided interior design elements for the aged care community.

“Paynters provided an end-to-end solution for Carinity, from initial master planning and in-house architectural services, all the way through to the engagement of our Interior Design team. The results are truly stunning,” Paynters Director John McCafferty said.

The Residences at Brownesholme is the fourth Carinity aged care community built by Paynters, with the others located at Brookfield, Townsville and the Gold Coast.

In 2018, The Residences at Cedarbrook aged care community at Mudgeeraba was named the best building project of its type at the Gold Coast Housing and Construction Awards.

“The team at Carinity have always been a reliable partner that we can confidently delve into the buildability with, to deliver well-functioning and aesthetically pleasing facilities,” John said.
