Construction starts at £7.5m Cringleford care home

June 16 2014

Independent sector health and social care provider Care UK has begun construction of a new £7.5 million care home being developed at the heart of Cringleford in Norfolk. Upon completion the new 80-bed home is set to create 100 jobs.

Representatives from building partner Metnor Construction joined forces with Care UK to mark the start of work on the new care home near Norwich.

The home is set to open in summer 2015 and will offer residential, nursing and specialist dementia care, as well as palliative, respite and end of life care. Facilities at the home will include a cinema, hair salon and a café.

Designed to support residents to live active and fulfilled lives, the state-of-the-art care environment will provide a welcoming ‘home from home’. Each individual bedroom will have an en-suite wet room, flat-screen television, adjustable profile bed and a 24-hour nurse call system.

Qas Israr, construction project manager for Care UK, said: “When complete this new home will improve the provision of high quality care for older people living in the area. We take a great pride in the design, layout and quality of our care homes; factors which can greatly impact the everyday experiences of people living in a care environment.”

John Middleton, site manager for Metnor Construction, is overseeing the development. He said: “Construction has started well and we’re on schedule for completion in summer 2015. At its peak, we expect the development to see around 60 workers on site to deliver this impressive new home. This is an important project for us and I’m confident that we’ll stay on schedule and develop a fantastic facility for the local community.”
