  • The project brief was to part demolish an existing care home whilst maintaining the live part of the care home and constructing a three storey multi-use facility adjacent to it.
  • The plant, laundry and kitchen facilities were constructed as part of the phase 1 works and were shared with the old and new facilities.
  • The old plant, laundry and kitchen facilities were then demolished to form another wing of the new facility. No interruption to these vital services occurred when implementing the changeover.
  • The building was constructed around five sensory courtyards where different features and themes support people with memory loss.
  • Ground Floor – Dementia Care | First Floor – Flats | Second Floor – Offices.
  • Detailed project management of the planning and procurement process to ensure scheme milestones are met to secure funding.
  • Timber frame construction drives challenging programme commitments.
