Borough Care

Working with GVA, we undertook the detailed design and contract administration for the whole Borough Care estate (formerly Stockport MBC Care Homes). Projects were typically 10-20 bed extensions, together with remodelling of the existing care homes to comply with current care home standards. Due to the age and condition of the care homes, many required replacement boiler plant and full or partial rewires. Refurbishment projects undertaken included:

• Meadway Court, Bramhall
• Shepley House, Hazel Grove
• Bryn Haven, Stockport
• Marbury House
• Reinbek, Stockport
• Silverdale
• Cawood House
• Belmont Court, Heatin Norris
• Wellcroft, Gatley

In addition, we designed a 50 bed new-build care home, Bruce Lodge, in Stockport. We included in the design: rainwater harvesting; high efficiency modular gas-fired boiler plant; and trickle feed ionisation water treatment, which alleviates the need for local mixing valves whilst creating a safer water environment.
