Hamberley, a specialist developer of luxury care homes, has completed the first of ten new build properties for Gracewell Healthcare.
Construction of an £8 million care home in Solihull was completed in May and the residence has received its CQC registration.
The opening of the 60-bedroom home will be followed by new openings in Adderbury, Bath, Bournville, Lane End, Little Bookham, Newbury, Sutton, Sutton Coldfield and Woking.
The team behind Hamberley founded Gracewell Healthcare in 2011 and these new buildings are the first turnkey developments that Hamberley has built exclusively for the provider since it was sold to Sunrise Senior Living and US health care real estate firm Welltower in August 2014, for £153 million.
Hamberley is now in talks with extra care operators, major social care providers and healthcare providers to provide turnkey developments – from land acquisition and planning to build and full luxury fit out.
Hamberley director Tim Street said he was delighted that the firm was leading the way in the construction of luxury care homes.
He said: “The Solihull home, and the others in the pipeline for Gracewell, set a new standard for high end care facilities for the elderly in the UK.
“The coming year will be a very busy year for us as we prepare to hand over the nine developments agreed with the Gracewell team and progress our pipeline developments for new clients and source the next wave of land acquisitions.
“We are already in advanced talks with a number of leading providers and real estate investors and we look forward to providing them with the highest quality health care facilities.”
Mr Street, who with Daniel Kay co-founded Gracewell Healthcare before continuing in business together at Hamberley, said that the team’s experience in running care homes gives them an advantage when it comes to creating new homes that put quality care at the heart of every project.
“As former operators we know exactly the challenges our clients face providing outstanding care and how the fabric and the design of the building is absolutely critical in the delivery of excellent care,” said Mr Street.
The new Solihull home will combine boutique hotel interior design with leading-edge dementia and innovative specialist care facilities and services, Hamberley says.
All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms. Communal services include a hair and beauty spa, a nail bar, a cafe, and a library.
