Located adjacent to the existing Barnaby House Extra Care Facility, an extension of the existing car park was completed to provide parking for the new facility.
The purpose-built accommodation is for persons with dementia, mental health problems and learning difficulties.
The facility includes a large and welcoming communal lounge area and the properties have dual aspect views of the external environment and a large amount of natural light.
The gardens and landscaping have been designed to aid orientation across the site through a change in planting scheme.
External and internal refurbishment works were undertaken at Lord Gort Court to improve the appearance of the building and modernise the outdated flat interiors.
The two-storey residential building which provides retirement housing was constructed in the early 1970’s and contains 31 self-contained apartments.
Delivered on behalf of Yorkshire Housing, the Bodmin Road development comprised the construction of 32 affordable flats, two and three-bedroom homes.
North Moor House is located North of the market town, Northallerton.
The development will see the creation of a new central Community Mental Health Team base, which will provide both staff accommodation and clinical facilities for specialist community mental health services.
The hub will be accessed via the construction of a new road which directly junctions the Northallerton Link Road.
With a three, two and one step down design, the building aims for a contemporary 21st century interpretation and has been developed through consultation with service users, carers and clinical staff to become a ‘landmark building’.
The 4 year framework involves works such as joinery, window replacements, glazing, internal and external doors, plastering, decoration, electrical works, lighting, heating, communal intercoms, plumbing and external works.
Our bespoke IT solution provides real time allocation of client appointments, highlighting only the operatives with the most appropriate skills to complete the specified works with the available time to deliver.
Our diary system is available to the client, allowing them to book initial appointments for customers and allocate a status.
The time allocated for received works is dependent upon the awarded status, with emergency works being completed within 24 hours, urgent within 3 days and routine within 28 days.
The scheme consists of the conversion of the former Cookridge Hospital Ida Wing into 6 apartments and the construction of a new three-storey building to provide 58 apartments which provide housing and extra care for residents.
The Ida Wing conversion includes a salon, café, laundry room, buggy store with charging points, care and support facilities, guest bedroom and office facilities for housing management staff.
The site is located at the heart of the Cookridge Hospital site and comprises the Grade II listed Ida Wing and land which was previously occupied by a nurse’s accommodation block and had previously been demolished.
The split-level design creates a large and level courtyard amenity space between the new and existing building. The large central courtyard will include landscaping with paths, raised planting beds, ornamental planting and seating spaces.
All of the 64 apartments have been designed in line with the University of Stirling’s Design Criteria for Dementia Care and provide ongoing care and support services for the elderly, enabling residents to maintain their independence and quality of life whilst living in their own home.
The aim of the facility is to bridge the gap between ordinary sheltered housing and residential care.
Planned preventative maintenance, reactive repairs and associated minor works were completed to the 200 West Yorkshire Police estate buildings covering an area of approximately 780 square miles.
The premises are located throughout the Forces Operational Area, which vary significantly in terms of physical condition and age with some consisting of several buildings on the same site.
Key project examples include Wetherby Welfare Refurbishment, Trafalgar House Undercroft and Northgate.
The Trafalgar House Undercroft project consisted of a £250k conversion of unused space at Bradford's largest police station.
Groundworks were completed along with new concrete flooring, damp proofing of exposed walls, new power supplies and mechanical heating and cooling to maintain an ambient temperature.
The £130k Northgate project was delivered over three phrases within a grade II listed building.
Working closely with the conservation officers, we developed a solution to replace warped floor joists with bespoke manufactured steel joists without impact on the listed status of the building.
The flooring was reinstated to the original condition and specification.
Forming part of a flagship programme for West Yorkshire Police, the £95k Wetherby Welfare Refurbishment comprised the refurbishment of kitchen and dining areas, male and female toilets, shower rooms, new flooring and decoration.

The properties are of traditional construction and the design has been selected to fit in with the existing residential properties.
The scheme has been supported by a £2m grant from Homes England and assists in meeting local housing demand.
Thirteen Group Headquarters comprises of two, three-storey wings either side of a central atrium.
The flexible, modern office space is open plan but designed to facilitate partitioning and is capable of sub-division to enable use by various occupiers.
Both onsite and offsite car parking facilities were including in the scheme.
The scheme was split into in two distinct phases: Phase 1a (University Square) and Phase 2 (University Road and Great Hall Square) comprising high quality hard landscaping, soft landscaping and remedial drainage repairs.
Winchester Avenue is a development of 60 extra care apartments, complete with communal facilities and secure landscaped grounds. The accommodation allows residents to live independently with easy access to social activities and care support.
Designed in line with the University of Stirling’s Design Criteria for Dementia Care, the apartments provide accessible, open plan, adaptable living areas with domestic feeling kitchens and wet rooms.

The Grade II listed former Institute of Pathology was converted to create 84 student bedrooms with communal living spaces and 28 self-contained studios with mezzanine decks.
The conversion also included the creation of a gym, laundry facility and private garden. The site is perfectly located within Leeds city centre and within close proximity to the campus, making it a desirable location for students.
The interior was transformed into modern apartments packed full of character.
The apartments have been designed to provide a stylish place to live and include contemporary communal kitchens, en-suite shower rooms and study areas.
The interior design finishes were carefully considered to compliment the original features of the building.
General repair works and cleaning were undertaken to the exterior to enhance the architectural design.
The terrazzo in the lobby and staircase was carefully cleaned and restored and the external herringbone patterned brickwork cleaned and restored across the building.
The building was originally constructed in 1933 following a large donation from Sir Algernon Firth whom the building was also named after.
The building closed in 2009 following the Institute of Pathology moving into new accommodation. The building remained empty until 2012 when works began to convert the building into luxury student apartments.
