Relevant experience builds the advantage
Commissioned by a private care operator, Asquith Hall is a new state-of-the-art care home facility for 53 residents.
The building provides individual resident rooms with en-suite bedrooms, activity rooms and day space, as well as some specialist facilities such as the hydrotherapy and Snoezelen rooms.
Following an initial review of the approved planning proposals, we suggested re-configuration the internal layouts to provide an additional two bedrooms within the same building footprint. The efficiency gained here was a clear result of our wide care home experience.

Our equally deep knowledge of low-energy and efficient building features enabled us to meet our client’s sustainability aspirations. In this case, we recommended an air source heating system that links to the under-floor heating and a rainwater harvesting system.
Site abnormalities included services diversions, main watercourse re-alignment and contamination removal. And, while these factors presented a challenge in hitting the fixed completion date, all works were finished on programme and on budget.
