A care facility with a community

The scheme was an excellent opportunity to regenerate the northern locality of Stafford by creating a flexible space to support both healthcare delivery and community, centered around a sustainable design and a focus of promoting wellbeing for all visitors. 

The development spans multiple units: The Elmwood Extra care facility offering 80 affordable apartments for those over 55; the specialist facility Limewood Dementia Centre with 59 ensuite bedrooms for every age and stage of dementia; Saltbank Court offering housing for people with learning disabilities and a community hub.

 

Part of the vision of the development was to provide a space beyond care; a community where residents could continue their usual lifestyle. With this in mind, the care village also includes a café, hairdresser’s, doctor's surgery and green space.

Challenge

We coordinated all stakeholders involved; caterers for the design of the kitchen, interior designers to achieve the Sterling Gold award and end-user groups for management of the scheme. 

As part of the multi-phase delivery, we managed the decant and relocation of existing care and dementia facilities into the new facility to allow the next phase to commence.

Solution

In managing all stakeholders, our role involved checking any variations in value for money and ensuring they were instructed and incorporated into the works. 

For the specialist Limewood Dementia Centre, we were involved in the design, procurement and costing of the memory hub which achieved Sterling Gold Standard. This included coordinating a variation to the contract to create a cobbled street scheme within the building with a separate pub, newsagent, hairdressers and cinema.
