Team behind multi-million pound Carpathia Grange celebrates ‘topping out’

May 20 2019

 

A £5.5 million Hythe care home has marked its latest construction milestone with the help of a special guest.

The Sheriff of Southampton, Councillor Peter Baillie, joined the Care UK team and representatives from construction partner, Lawrence Baker, for a ‘topping out’ ceremony at Carpathia Grange, on Southampton Road.

The purpose-built care home – which is expected to welcome its first residents in summer 2019 – will provide full-time residential, nursing and specialist dementia care for up to 62 older people, with facilities including its own cinema, hairdressing salon and café.

Andrew Brett, development project manager for Care UK, said: “As the latest addition to a growing portfolio of residential care homes, the Hythe site represents a major investment for Care UK and reflects our commitment to improving the provision of residential care in the town.

“I am delighted to have been a part of this milestone as we step ever-closer to opening the doors to the people of Hythe. We are honoured that the Sheriff of Southampton was able to celebrate the occasion with us and look forward to welcoming him back to the care home once complete.”

Ryan Farrell, contracts manager for Lawrence Baker, added: “It is a pleasure working with Care UK yet again to create a welcoming and fit-for-purpose home – we could not have asked for a more cohesive approach.

“We are proud to be delivering a high-quality facility for the local community that will welcome many residents for years to come.”
