Esh Construction hands over £12m extra care development in Lincoln

A ribbon cutting event officially marked the opening of the 70-apartment extra care facility.

A £12 million development which will provide 70 new extra apartments in Lincoln is now complete, with residents set to move in next month.

Esh Construction joined City of Lincoln Council and guests, including the Right Worshipful, the Mayor of Lincoln, at an official opening event for the De Wint Court extra care facility.

Jointly funded between City of Lincoln Council, Homes England and Lincolnshire County Council, the facility features 50 one-bedroom and 20 two-bedroom apartments, a wellbeing suite, changing places facility, restaurant and salon.

De Wint Court has been designed to respond to individuals changing care needs with on-site care support available. It aims to enhance quality of life and give people the provision to stay within their local communities and access services close to home.

Stuart Leslie, Divisional Director at Esh Construction added: “We are proud to have delivered this fantastic new extra care facility in Lincoln, providing high quality and much-needed new homes to enable people to live independently with onsite care and support.

“Throughout this scheme we worked hard to maximise the social and economic benefits for the local area. Through our commitment to employing locally, more than 70 operatives were Lincolnshire residents, and 24 new jobs were created for local people who were previously unemployed.”

The redevelopment of De Wint Court plays a vital part in the city council’s commitment to provide quality homes at affordable rents, to meet the diverse housing need within the city.

Cllr Donald Nannestad, Portfolio Holder for Quality Housing at City of Lincoln Council said: “These new apartments will enable residents to maintain independence in their own homes as their needs change with care providers arranged by the county council.

“De Wint will play a vital part in our commitment to provide quality homes, to meet the diverse housing need within the city, and I welcome our new residents to the development.”
