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.
