Care Home Extension & Alterations

Known as the ‘150th Anniversary Project’ and officially opened by HRH The Princess Royal, this impressive scheme involved the construction of a new extension and associated internal refurbishments and alterations. A vaulted day room was formed at first floor level with curved curtain walling to complete the stunning design, all whilst the home remained fully operational.
