52 flats and a 10 bed en-suite care ward and communal facilities whilst residents remained on site
- The phasing of this project was crucial to its successful delivery so we utilised a five storey timber frame to secure our project programme and to allow for the relocation of the existing residents to the new facility as planned.
- Phase 1 – Partial demolition of the existing care home and construction of a new build facility within the grounds.
- Phase 2 – Occupants transferred to the new facility, demolition of the remaining building followed by extensive landscaping.
- The design considered the existing trees on the site and the layout was designed so that valuable specimens could be protected and enjoyed by future generations.
- Timber frame construction drives challenging programme commitments and allows for programme compression.
- The local community was extensively consulted on our proposals to ensure a close working relationship with the minimisation of dust and nuisance a key consideration.
- The Project Manager for the Leadon Bank scheme – Alan Cambridge, was awarded Project Manager of the Year by the Building Safety Group.
