The Challenge.

This project was similar to the refurbishment being concurrently completed at Norfolk House, Weybridge and involved the full internal refurbishment of a sixty one bedroom care home. All non-service communal areas were refurbished including dining rooms, lounges, corridors, assisted bathrooms, assisted toilets and day rooms. All sixty one bedrooms were also refurbished and the existing En-suite bathrooms to all rooms were converted to wet rooms with assisted


Delighted service users, client management and staff alike, who experienced minimum disruption throughout the planned forty five week programme period.

The Solution.

The bedroom and En-suite part of the works constituted the critical path of the refurbishment programme; the communal areas were programmed to run concurrently with each floor being its own phase within the programme. We also carried out some landscaping to the grounds and the main entrance was refurbished, including alterations to make the Reception Desk DDA compliant. The second floor of the home (17 bedrooms) was refurbished to Dementia Care Standard, complete with its own hairdressing salon.
