Faithful+Gould was appointed to provide Employer’s Agent, Quantity Surveyor and Principal Designer services on the Joseph Rowntree Housing Trust’s New Lodge scheme in New Earswick, York. It is a landmark extra care development in the UK providing suitable accommodation for over 55’s.
The £25.7 million new build construction of 105Nr apartment extra care development incorporating a 44Nr bedroom care home spread over 4Nr buildings and the refurbishment of a Grade II listed Folk Hall creates a community hub for the extra care residents and local community.
The development includes extensive public realm works including a multi-use games area (MUGA), public open space, sensory garden, public cycle routes and parking. The tenure of the scheme is affordable rent and shared ownership, leading the way in innovation, unity and integration of the local community.
Faithful+Gould is committed to delivering extra care schemes which meet the client’s and residents’ expectations, this is achieved through our extensive extra care experience coupled with integration of revolutionary technologies such as Matterport Camera . We used it to create an immersive and realistic virtual tour of New Lodge which also captured imagery, the measurements and other data to help with the building’s maintenance and showcase the progress of the construction. The Virtual Tour can be found here.
New Lodge has set an example for care and extra care providers showcasing how collaboration of industry leaders can positively shape the future of construction for the sector.
