Housing Association One Housing is introducing a luxury senior living concept to its portfolio of accommodation options for disadvantaged Londoners.
The company currently owns around 20,000 units in London and the South East catering to residents of all ages and cirmumstances who are unable to afford their own homes.
The new luxury senior living concept, branded Baycroft, is part of a programme to provide 800 more new beds for older people.
Specialist care home builder Castleoak has been appointed as the lead developer of a £6m turnkey care home development in Chelmsford.
Commenting on the new development, Andrew Winstanley, care home project director at One Housing said: “Baycroft homes will offer outstanding care, service and facilities for residents in a luxury environment. With Castleoak’s experience in the sector, we are certain that they will deliver the high quality homes we expect for our expanding portfolio.”
Doug Jones, development director at Castleoak adds: “We identified and acquired an attractive development site in Chelmsford for One Housing then achieved planning permission. We look forward to now delivering a care home that meet the aspirations of the Baycroft brand and our purpose to deliver quality living space for customers.”
The new 64-bed care home, designed and built by Castleoak will include pre-fabricated timber frame manufactured at Castleoak’s in-house ISO9001 standard factory. Built to BREEAM Very Good standard, the home will open in autumn 2017 offering nursing and specialist dementia care.
