Nottingham contractor Clegg Construction has won a £10million contract to build a new care home in Peterborough for Avery Healthcare.
Avery has more than 50 residences across the country and has several more in development to help meet growing national demand for residential care services.
The 80-bed facility will be located in a larger development known as Hampton Gardens, which includes a convenience store, residential accommodation and a children’s nursery.
It will be the third care home that Clegg has been commissioned to build in partnership with Avery Healthcare, following contracts in Derby and Norwich which are now taking shape.
Simon Langley, Head of Contracts at Clegg, said: “As an attractive city with a wide range of amenities, Peterborough is a popular choice for older people looking to enjoy their retirement.
“It is therefore imperative that we provide safe and secure first-class care accommodation, so that people in need of residential care can continue to live full and independent lives.
“That’s what we aim to create at Hampton Gardens in partnership with Avery Healthcare.”
The development will include a cafe, cinema, hair salon, bright common areas for residents and visitors, and a secure landscaped garden.
All bedrooms will be en-suite and the whole property will be a dementia friendly environment.
Mr Langley said the three-storey facility is designed to make efficient use of the space available on the site and to limit the visual impact on neighboring homes.
He said: “The proposed development offers a contemporary style care home which will be built to a high standard to meet the much needed demand for residential care facilities in Hampton Gardens and the wider region.
“We are delighted to have been selected to build another person-centred care home for Avery and we cannot wait to begin work.”
Adrian Doyle, Director of Developments at Avery Healthcare Group, said: “We are delighted to be working with Clegg Construction, with whom we have an excellent relationship. We look forward to starting work as soon as possible to see this exciting project unfold.
Founded in the 1930s, Clegg Construction is headquartered in Nottingham with regional bases in Cambridge and Leeds.
The company works across all sectors, including health, education, leisure, industry, hospitality and the public sector, and over the past three years has completed major construction projects in partnership with several leading healthcare providers including Avery Healthcare, Barchester Healthcare and Care UK.
