Project Description

Pacy & Wheatley are proud to begin an impressive Healthcare Construction project in York. The Design and Build of a new, 80 bed care home with accommodating en-suites to all rooms. The building has varied height and elevational treatments to avoid the typical ‘box’ look. The structure will largely be built with traditionally methods, and internally will include a wide range of facilities to assist in the care services required by the end user. Communal areas will allow residents to relax and spend time with their families and visitors, with the inclusion of Nursing amenities, kitchen and dining spaces, spa and hair salon, along with roof terraces overlooking the courtyard and an aesthetic green roof system on the single storey build. Once complete it will provide a modern Care Home facility, suitable for today’s needs. The project forms an integral part of a planned programme of development by City of York Council to the area, to include library and community facilities, a sports centre and pitches, and a residential development.

The Challenge

Residential areas are located around the Site’s vicinity with a Community Centre, School and Children’s Club all nearby. The Site Team will be required to ensure the utmost safety and security throughout the duration of the project, especially in respect of young persons. Neighbours will be given great consideration.

As a Considerate Contractor, all plant and machinery used and site noise will be kept to a minimum, with the assurance that any loud activities will be properly planned and managed to ensure minimum disturbance to all. A full site and development traffic plan will be utilised to monitor deliveries, and the like, through which we will work closely with City of York Council to minimise disruption.

The development has a requirement to achieve a ‘very good’ BREEAM rating with regards to the sustainability of the development and efficiency of operation, thereafter.
