Project Information

The construction programme consisted of 2 elements which included the refurbishment of buildings of the existing care home and the construction of a brand new accommodation building.

Two of the four wings of the original building were transformed with a £900,000 refurbishment programme providing accommodation for ten existing residents, as well as admin offices, service catering areas and a medication management facility.
