We want to help older people live as actively and independently as possible.
Delivering homes for people over 55 years old accounts for 25 per cent of our housing workload, ranging from sheltered accommodation and self-contained units to care homes with communal areas and retirement villages.
In the past three years we have created 1,500 homes tailored for this sector. This includes recently completing Denham Garden Village for Anchor Trust, as well as the first of 325 homes in six sheltered units for Housing 21 in Walsall.
Our clients vary from registered social landlords and local authorities to care home specialists such as the ExtraCare Charitable Trust. Our strength is to understand the specific requirements for creating homes that allow people in their elder years to thrive and enjoy their lives within the wider community.
From PFI to single stage tendering, we work with whatever procurement process best suits our partners. This starts at the planning application stage, working closely with the local authority, and continues through the design and cost stage, to construction and beyond with our aftercare service.
