Aerial View of Burnholme Construction Site
As part of Pacy & Wheatley's on-going work with Burnholme Care Home, we have commissioned drone footage of the York site to offer a fresh perspective of our latest project.
We commissioned SkyeServe, a South Yorkshire-based company, to capture the development of the 80-bed care home. This video highlights how much has changed on-site since the turf-cutting ceremony on 12 June of this year. Abundant progress has been made on the foundations, substructure masonry, and ground floor precast installations, alongside masonry superstructure and perimeter groundworks.
Drones, also known as Small Unmanned Aircraft, are becoming very popular across many different industries. They can fly up to around 400 ft and offer a new perspective for businesses and clients – both metaphorically and literally! We love this video and plan on scheduling two more drone footage updates: once during the roof installation and another when the project is complete.
Burnholme Care Home, which is set to open in Autumn 2020, will offer modern residential and nursing care for elderly people in the area. Each bedroom is fitted with an en-suite and the residence will feature luxury amenities, such as a spa, library, gym, coffee shop, and cinema! As part of the Older Persons Accommodation Programme, it seeks to meet modern care standards and to make care more accessible for people with higher care needs.
The care home is part of a larger regeneration, called The Centre @ Burnholme. After the demolition of the former college, space has been cleared for the centre's own purpose-built GP surgery, library and housing.
We were very proud to be selected as the principal construction contractor for this project and are thrilled to work alongside Ashley House plc, Morgan Sindell Investments Ltd, HC-One, Penoyre & Prasad LLP, and Rider Levett Bucknall. We can't wait to see how this project progresses.
