This extra care scheme will provide 45 apartments designed specifically for older people needing care.
The development will provide self-contained flats with communal areas, which have been designed to enhance and encourage a far more independent lifestyle for elderly residents.
The project involves the sub-division of the existing car park, demolition of outbuildings on the south and north-east boundaries, and construction of a part three/part four-storey building with balconies and roof terrace, to provide 45 ‘extra care’ apartments with on-site care facilities, associated landscaping and parking.
A challenge for this project has been operating on a shared construction site alongside another contractor, refurbishing the adjoining school. This has required the use of a shared site access, security and regular delivery and progress coordination meetings.
