JCT Design & Build

Potter Raper provided Fund Monitoring services developing existing farmland into a new-build care home comprising three independent buildings connected by a glazed link bridge. 78 bedrooms with en-suite facilities for the elderly, specifically for nursing and dementia care, with associated amenities that include car parking and a private landscaped residents’ garden.

The care home was built on the site of a former dairy; therefore, its design took cues from the existing agricultural theme to reminisce a series of barns and farm buildings. The scheme utilised glazed links, horizontal timber boarding and zinc dormers to provide a striking design.

The development was entirely funded by Aviva Investors, with Frontier as developers and One Housing Group taking the head lease.

The care home was marketed as a low care facility. However, due diligence was undertaken with the Care Quality Commission (CQC) and they were satisfied that the facility met the minimum requirements to pass their audit.
