Healthcare, Lifestyle & Retirement Projects

HPA Group provides turnkey solutions to build thriving lifestyle communities and has an extensive industry track record.  From checking sites for feasibility, to master planning, resource consent, architectural design, project management and construction, HPA acts as a single unified point of contact for clients in both North and South Island markets.

In its residential lifestyle developments, HPA can take the project from bare land through to a fully operating people-based business.  We can also assist with redevelopments and small building extensions – no project is too small.

HPA typically undertakes single level dwellings, creating high quality projects where purchasers can have input into the interior design of their home, and with outdoor space for residents to enjoy. Projects are built in small stages over years, reducing capital investment requirement and risk.  HPA uses local contractors and suppliers where possible.

Along with villas and hospitals, facilities buildings are also constructed including indoor pools, hair salons, communal or commercial kitchens, resident bars and lounges, crafts rooms, and libraries.

Once the facility is built, HPA is often involved with advising on management of operations, sales and marketing.  HPA also undertakes its own projects, seeking investors interested in taking part.  With ownership interests in our own villages, we have a distinct advantage over independent consultants – we know the challenges and drivers that must be managed and respected if our clients are to achieve their goals.

HPA strives to create an environment that encourages village sales and promotes a sense of community.
