Project Description

Pacy and Wheatley are pleased to be appointed for a design and build project, a new quality home for Huddersfield to provide specialist residential care. The project consists of the construction of a new 8 bed timber frame/stone faced care home on the site of a former Methodist church. Facilities are to include a sensory activity room, all en-suite rooms, an assisted bathroom, on site staff accommodation and laundry / kitchen installations. External works including new gas, water and electric services, a new car park and sewer connections are being successfully co-ordinated to ensure minimal disruption to the residents on the street. The end product is sure to be an attractive, well finished and beautifully landscaped building.

The Challenge

The site is on a busy residential road and in close proximity to a busy supermarket. Consideration has to be given to civil works by close liaison with the highways authority and council. Significant site remodelling and shaping has been undertaken to allow the foundation & slab installation.
