The project consisted of a large extension to create a new canopy entrance providing a new reception area which included a brand new bespoke staircase and Velux windows in the roof giving a lovely modern space.
The building also benefited from new guest lounges and accommodation with en-suite bathrooms, a newly refurbished dining room and new administration facilities. New kitchen facilities were also fitted and so to avoid any disruption to normal service hours to the residents these works were carried out at night.
All of the work was carefully phased to avoid any disruption to the residents, staff and visitors. This meant that the project was a challenge at times as programmes were regularly changed when refurbishing bedrooms to ensure that residents were not affected in any way.
