Hallmark has marked a major milestone in the construction of a 77-bed care home in Hutton, Essex, which will provide residential, nursing and dementia care.
The ‘topping out’ ceremony for Hutton View Care Home was attended by Hallmark’s Chair and Savista Developments Managing Director Avnish Goyal, the Mayor, Councillor Keith Parker and Cllr John Kerslake.
Avnish said: “We have over 20 years’ experience building and running award-winning care homes. We are excited to be able to create a luxurious and engaging new care community in Hutton and to have built this in partnership with our sister construction company, Savista Developments.
“Hutton View Care Home will provide residents with a place where they feel safe and supported to live an active and fulfilled life.”
The home is being built by Savista Developments on the same 3.3-acre site as the care group’s new 55-bed assisted living scheme, at a cost of £23m.
Facilities at the home will include a cinema, music room, hairdressers and therapy room. Each bedroom will be elegantly furnished, have an en-suite bathroom and many of those on the ground floor will have access to their own patio.
Other communal areas include a café, celebrations room, farmhouse kitchen and several dining rooms, which will enable relatives to have a meal with their loved ones.
Outside there will be landscaped gardens with 77 newly planted trees and a sensory walk for residents and visitors to enjoy.
Hutton View is scheduled to open its doors to its first residents in spring next year. The assisted living development is expected to open in autumn.
The new development will be Hallmark’s 21st care home and first venture into assisted living.
