This extra care scheme will provide 45 apartments designed specifically for older people needing care.

  • Budget:£6,500,000
  • Procurement:Design and Build
  • Client:Viridian Housing Association
  • Concept Architect:Pozzoni Architecture Ltd
  • Working Drawings Architect:MEPK Architects
  • Agent:Capita Symonds

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.
