Winchester Avenue Extra Care, Grimsby

Watson Batty Architects (WBA) were appointed to support ESH Construction deliver a new build, 60-unit extra care facility in Grimsby. WBA assisted ESH Construction with their D&B tender to Morgan Ashley for this state-of-the-art new build scheme, providing technical advice on deliverability and detailing issues.

The development is located on Winchester Avenue on the Nunsthorpe Estate and has been made possible due to a £10.2 million investment from Places for People Living+ and Homes England. With planning approval already in place, our role will be to carry out the detailed design and working drawings packages to aid ESH during the construction phase.

This new, highly anticipated scheme is being delivered by Morgan Ashley (a Joint Venture between Ashley House and Morgan Sindall Investments) and will initially provide 60 extra care apartments in Grimsby. The project is part of a wider partnership to deliver 300 extra care apartments supporting elderly people to live safely and independently with care on hand if required.
