Project Description

Pacy and Wheatley, National Healthcare Construction Company, were delighted to have been awarded the Magdalen Park Care Home construction project, for YorKare Homes, in Hedon Hull. It is our largest new build nursing home, with a build cost of £3.4 million. The home can accommodate up to 64 residents needing nursing, residential or specialist dementia care.

The ground floor is split into two units of 12 beds, each with their own sensory gardens with model animals, and an allotment, dining rooms and lounge areas. Between the two units is the 'street scene' which includes a shop named Sweets and Treats, a hair and beauty salon and a pub - The Magdalen Arms.

The first and second floors are for residents needing residential or nursing care. This area includes a large lounge with a library and computer station, entertainment room, rooftop conservatory and dining room. Both the first floor and second floor have outdoor areas; the first floor has a terrace off the lounge area, while the second floor features a rooftop garden including an artificial bowls green.

All of the bedrooms are large with full ensuite wet rooms. There are also 2 premier suites specially designed for couples or siblings with their own kitchenettes and living areas, which can also be used individually. These create a very independent lifestyle and really are a home within a home.

The Challenge

To produce a first class product for a valued client, and to complete the project on time and to budget.

Dealing with a high water table site to install a 1000m3 attenuation tank.

To ensure minimum disruption to the local village of Hedon for both business and neighbors.

To achieve timely CQC certification.

The Solution

Utilising competent in-house staff and some key supply chain members for the project.

Due to the initial inclement weather conditions, Groundworks and drainage were accelerated to alleviate further Groundwater issues.

Projected delivery assisted by the use of Local Labour, Suppliers and Subcontractors.

Sub Contract Collaboration meetings were vital at the finishing stage.

Key Achievements

Establishing early relationships.

Our 1st Rooftop Bowling Green and Terrace Garden.

Working with the client and the team to deliver a project that looked and felt a great place for the residents to enjoy.

CQC inspection and certification achieved within 2 days of Handover.
