16 Bedroom New Build Care Home, Chesterfield
From design to completion, we have worked very close with our client to fully design and specify the building with large spacious living and service areas to the ground floor, 16 bedrooms spread over two floors with the second floor being in the roof space.
A project with many challenges! From the outset all the trees surrounding the building are protected, with access up a narrow steep drive for all the deliveries. This meant planning of the projects logistics had to be throughout and revised daily.
The foundation consisted of a 3.5m retaining wall excavated close to neighbours boundary, this was completed effectively with full tanking system.
The roof was the biggest challenge which comprises of six dormer windows, varied pitches and a diamond shaped vaulted entrance lobby with bespoke aluminium guttering, which was difficult to design and install but we got there with help from a specialist fabricators. The care home aims to be sustainable as we integrated 9KW of solar panels into this roof structure.
