Esh Construction’s commercial build division has successfully handed over a new 60-home extra care development in Grimsby, with the first residents set to move into their new apartments in the coming weeks.
Known as Burchester Court, the three-storey building comprises one and two-bedroom apartments, all with accessible and open plan living space and substantial bedrooms. Each apartment boasts a private front door, a contemporary kitchen and a stylish bathroom wet floor with decorative level access shower area. A full height window in the main living area forms the ‘heart’ of the apartment – an ideal space for connecting with family and friends.
The scheme is the first extra care development in Grimsby for Living Plus, which is part of the Places for People Group, and has been delivered in partnership with Morgan Sindall Later Living, North East Lincolnshire CCG and Homes England.
As an independent living option for local residents over-55 who have care and support needs, or those who may need them in the future, residents will benefit from 24-hour onsite care, the Garden City café, a hair and beauty salon, lounges and gardens for socialising, as well as a guest suite for family or friends to stay overnight. It is also in close proximity to much loved community hub, Centre One.
Stuart Leslie, Divisional Director at Esh Construction, said: “We are proud to have delivered this fantastic new extra care facility in Grimsby, providing high quality and much-needed new homes to enable people to live independently with onsite care and support. It has been a pleasure to work with the partners on this scheme and we would like to thank the team for working in true collaboration to overcome the difficulties faced as a result of these unprecedented times.
Andy Lomas of Living Plus, said: “We have a proven track record in creating homes of mixed tenure across the country and I am delighted that we have been able to apply our expertise in Grimsby, establishing our first development in the town and creating new homes for people who need them.”
Laurence Basturkmen, Director at Morgan Sindall Later Living, concluded: “Reaching practical completion at Burchester Court is a fantastic milestone for Morgan Sindall Later Living, its partners and for those looking for extra care accommodation in the North East Lincolnshire area.
“Extra care schemes such as this, provide residents and their families with complete reassurance and peace of mind that they are living in a safe, self-contained yet engaging environment, where they can meet like-minded people and enjoy life, but where they can get the support and professional care they need, if and when required.”
