The international project management and cost consultants were awarded the contract to provide employers agent services and planning supervisory duties by MHA as part of a rolling programme of works.
Having recently opened, Berwick Grange, a 52-bed, three storey residential care home offers dementia care in addition to residential and nursing support to older people. Situated on Wetherby Road the new care home boasts en-suite assisted bathing facilities to all bedrooms as well as three assisted bathrooms and three shower rooms for use by residents. A library and reading room have also been provided as well as three communal lounges, a full catering kitchen, laundry facilities and management offices.
The project has been undertaken to replace the original care home. The redundant site is also due to be transformed by MHA into a development comprising 30 extra care apartments and two bungalows. The apartments are for sale and will provide care and support to enable older people to live independently.
Paul Webb, MHA client manager, for Faithful+Gould said: "We are delighted to have successfully completed this project in line with MHA’s organisational and financial targets. It further enhances our booming health portfolio totalling over £20 million, and is the latest of six such contracts our health team has successfully delivered for MHA in the last three years."
Sharon Morley, for MHA, said: "MHA has an excellent working relationship with Faithful+Gould’s team. Its broad experience in the sector made them an obvious choice for our new building which will allow us to expand our much needed services for older people within a purpose built environment."
