We have been appointed by the Council’s housing department to reconfigure the existing 24 bedroom development (which forms part of a wider complex of housing and support facilities for the elderly) to provide the following improved facilities:
- New 8Person disabled lift (to replace two existing lifts inaccessible to wheelchairs); new wheelchair assisted accommodation; new heating and hot water plant; new laundry; new sprinkler installation; new fire and smoke detection systems; upgrade of the building’s thermal and acoustic performance.

The proposals include a new ‘standalone’ building which will house new central plant and additional bedrooms, which allows for the phased refurbishment of the existing buildings.
