New Lincoln extra care facility nears completion

Senior representatives met on site to see first hand the progress made at De Wint Court.

Work on Lincoln’s new De Wint Court Extra Care facility is nearing completion, with internal fittings now underway.

Esh Construction is working in partnership with City of Lincoln Council to deliver the 50 one-bed and 20 two-bed apartment extra care facility on Bowden Drive in Lincoln, with an opening expected for the end of the year.

Once complete, the redevelopment of De Wint Court will play 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.

The jointly funded scheme between City of Lincoln Council, Homes England and Lincolnshire County Council will have care provision available, non-resident management and support staff, a wellbeing suite, changing places facility, restaurant and salon.

Stuart Leslie, Divisional Director at Esh Construction said: “Construction of De Wint Court is progressing well, and the team continue to work hard to manage additional challenges faced as a result of the pandemic.

“It is well documented that our ageing society is creating a growing shortage of retirement living options. As a contractor, we’re proud to be playing our part in building communities where people can spend their later life through schemes like De Wint Court.”

De Wint Court has been designed in such a way that allows it to respond to individuals changing care needs with on-site care support. It will aim to enhance quality of life and give people the provision to stay within their local communities and access services close to home.

Cllr Donald Nannestad, Portfolio Holder for Quality Housing at City of Lincoln Council said: “Following our visit to site, I am very pleased with the progression of works, and look forward to seeing the final product later this year.

“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. Once complete, De Wint will play a vital part in our commitment to provide quality homes at affordable rents, to meet the diverse housing need within the city.”
