Project Description

Pacy & Wheatley Construction have been appointed to a Healthcare Care Home New Build for our repeat client Minster Care Group in Ely, Cambridgeshire, after the successful completion of the site Duncote Hall, near Northampton. This project consists of constructing a detached new build 21-bed Care Home with an enclosed walkway across to the existing Home. The demolition of unused buildings and a summer house along one side of the land. The works will also involve external alterations; including an additional car park and fencing around the perimeter of the Home.

The Challenge

Initial challenges that the project has faced from the outset are as follows;

The Home will remain open for the entirety of our works. The utmost care and consideration will be illustrated by our Site team to ensure minimal disruption is caused to the service provided by the Care Home.

The Site's entrance driveway is relatively narrow with little room to manoeuvre. This will mean that restrictions will reflect upon which delivery wagons can be accepted and a just in time philosophy approach is being adopted.

Adjacent to the Site is a Primary School; therefore, the welfare of the children will continue to be at the forefront of our work.

Tree protection and the protection of existing historic air raid shelters is also required which will add to the tightness of the site and buildability.
