Brook View Care Home, Liverpool

We acted as lead on the architectural, interior and technical design elements of the extensive alterations and refurbishment of a former private care home in Liverpool. Involved from the outset, the team worked closely with Exemplar Health Care internal stakeholders and client agents, Faithful & Gould, to develop and deliver the scheme to meet the requirements of the specialist care provider within the constraints of the existing building.

Starting on site in 2018, works transformed the former Ennerdale House building on the site of Aintree Hospital into a new specialist service, Brook View. Providing a high-quality, spacious service designed to meet the needs of residents living with a range of complex nursing needs, Exemplar Healthcare reduced the number of bedrooms from 60 to a 32-bed facility with associated accommodation.

Set back off the road and overlooking a brook, the service includes a therapy suite, spacious lounges and dining rooms and a garden for residents and family members to relax and socialise.

The alterations and refurbishment of the 1930’s building presented a number of challenges during the construction phase as the building fabric was stripped back in order to provide Exemplar Healthcare with a high-quality end product. With extensive experience in delivering specialist living projects, we were able to call upon our expertise to work alongside Exemplar Healthcare and deliver the desired project outcome within constraints of the existing building and budget. We were novated to principle contractor, Castlehouse Construction.
