Building a modern dementia care home from victorian villas
The project consisted of repairing, restoring and extending two Victorian villas and converting them into a modern dementia care home.
The work involved restoration of the highly ornate external joinery, reconstruction and repair of the decorated stone porches, waterproofing the basement to create a plant room, fire prevention and alarm measures, installation of lifts and specialist bathroom equipment, substantial extensions to the front and rear and wide ranging repair and restoration throughout.
Today Byron House Care Home comfortably accommodates 27 dementia care patients each with their own private rooms finished to a very high specification as well as a warm, light and welcoming communal area with views to the wheelchair friendly gardens.
Conversion of decayed building to care home
“My client wanted to extend and refurbish their premises to provide a modern quality environment for care to meet the Care Quality Commission and DDA requirements. I was in need of a local Principal Contractor that I could rely on to effectively project manage, communicate throughout the build and to meet the comprehensive level of requirements needed. Saunders Brothers provided me with a high level of professionalism, skills and ability to meet the demands of this complex project. Collaborating with Saunders Brothers on this project has been successful – deadlines were met, within budget and I would continue to work with them on future projects.”
