Manage the second phase of works, replacing an existing care home with a new care home and extra care apartments. All accommodation to provide a high standard of living and communal accommodation with a wide array of facilities.
The final design consists of 59 self-contained, one and two-bedroom apartments, 24 of which are for purchase through Older Persons Shared Ownership (OPSO), the remaining will be available for rent.
Sunny landscaped gardens, maintained woodland, and distinctive elevations with large glazed openings maximise sunlight penetration into the building. The proposed new facility is a prime example of collective living and care for the elderly.
The construction whilst traditional in appearance incorporated the use of a thin joint Silka block system which reduced the construction programme and provided the opportunity to broaden the knowledge base within the office.
