LHI Retirement Services Glynde


Founded in 1957, Lutheran Homes Inc. (now LHI Retirement Services) sets new standards for retirement living. Due to the growing demand of retirement living in SA, Kennett Builders were engaged to expand the Glynde residential care facility.


  • The units needed to reflect the character of the surrounding neighbourhood and the needs of retirees
  • Work had to be completed with minimal disruption to surrounding and existing residents
  • Following the success of stage 1, Kennett Builders had to ensure the transparency of stage 2


  • The project was completed on budget and within the allocated timeframe
  • Following the success of stage 1, the client negotiated stage 2 directly with us
  • The successful construction of 33 retirement living units, including associated infrastructures, roads and services all constructed over 2 stages
  • The residential facility included high specification kitchen and joinery features, with luxury wet areas
  • External features included electric vergolas over the patio areas and a landscaped garden
