Construction of 73 bed dementia care home.

This Turnkey facility was a fully fitted care home.

Abbey House is a purpose built care home providing residential, nursing and specialist dementia care and is designed to meet Stirling Gold Dementia Care standards. Special features include balcony gardens with astro turf and planting on the first and second floors, activity rooms, a hairdressers and assisted bathrooms.

The home is split into several small groups of 6-7 bedrooms, each with their own open plan living and dining room and seating areas to create a homely feel.

Each of the communal areas has its own distinctive colourway to help residents identify their group facilities.

The fitting out design was developed in consultation with key stakeholders and senior members of the Client’s management team during detailed design development.

Procurement of FF&E was monitored to ensure that the Client’s budget was not exceeded and best value obtained. The project was delivered on time and within budget.
