Construction of a £10million care home in Peterborough’s new Hampton Gardens is set to begin soon.
It follows the decision by care provider Avery Healthcare, which owns more than 50 homes across the country, to hire Nottingham-based Clegg Construction to build the three-storey, 80-bed care home.
The facility will include a variety of day areas to ensure residents benefit from a premium quality of life, including a coffee shop, cinema, hair salon, bright communal areas for residents and visitors, and a safe and attractive landscaped outdoor garden.
All bedrooms will be en-suite and all furnishings are designed to provide a dementia-friendly environment.
It will be in the larger Hampton Gardens development, which includes a grocery store, residential accommodation and a nursery.
The nursing home, which will also have 34 parking spaces, is expected to create 80 full-time jobs.
Simon Langley, Contracts Manager at Clegg Construction 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 quality and safe care accommodation so that those in need of care can continue to lead full and independent lives.
“That’s what we want to create in partnership with Avery Healthcare at Hampton Gardens.
He added: “The proposed development offers a contemporary style care home facility, built to exacting standards to meet the much needed demand for residential care facilities in Hampton Gardens and the wider area.
“We are extremely pleased to have been selected to build another person-centric care home for Avery and look forward to beginning 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.”
The Hampton Gardens development will include 866 two-, three-, four- and five-bedroom homes, as well as a new secondary school, co-op store and nursery with four playrooms and an outdoor playground.
