Extra care housing development of 39 number one and two bedroom flats, comprising 15 flats for shared ownership and 24 flats for rent.
This development is an extra care development that offers a range of services for older people. Every flat has its own front door, living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom, and a standard pull-cord system. There is also a restaurant on the ground floor serving hot meals at lunchtime. There is a designated space for a visiting hairdresser and a residents’ lounge overlooking landscaped gardens.
The scheme was constructed using a light gauge steel frame, and SIPs panels. The roof was traditionally cut and pitched with timber to create a mansard appearance.
A trained team of care staff, based on site 24 hours a day, provides services that support residents to live life to the full. Benwell Court is operated by Spelthorne Borough Council and offers activities for the community on week days.
