Care Home Construction, Northampton

Posted on 11 May 2022

Pacy & Wheatley carried out a construction project for a care home in Northampton. See how we overcame the challenges present with a range of solutions.

Pacy & Wheatley were the chosen construction partner for a care home in Northampton for Montpellier Estates Limited. The project, valued at circa £3.5 million, consisted of a new-build, 20-bed ABI care home built on the grounds of an existing care home in Daventry. The new care home includes features such as a hydrotherapy pool, gymnasium, and therapy suits.

Building the new facility on the site of an existing care home presented a challenge. With limited space and part of the existing facility being of listed status, careful consideration was required to make the best use of available space. All car parking was required to remain, which further limited the space that could be used to construct the new care home.

To overcome the logistical problems, a Tower Crane was chosen by the client's team and Pacy & Wheatley, after close collaboration. A temporary access road provides entrance to the site, and the listed building was protected with a timber hoarding structure. As a Considerate Contractor, we kept any disturbance to a minimum to avoid disrupting the lives of the nearby residents.

The completed project employs split-level retaining wall structures, cavity walls, aluminium windows and doors, and flat roofing with eaves and feature overhang details. It varies in height between one and two stories and is designed to fit in with the site content, topography, landscape, and local architecture. It has been built to fit in sympathetically with the location.

This project came with a number of challenges, for which we were able to find working solutions in order to create a new facility providing a vital service and employment.
