Midlands-based Deeley Construction and Kingsley Healthcare Group have marked a milestone in the construction of a £12m care home in Northamptonshire.
The ‘topping out’ ceremony was held in Brackley for the 66-bed nursing home that will create 100 jobs.
Peter Deeley, managing director of the Deeley Group, said: “We are thrilled with the progress of this scheme on behalf of Kingsley Healthcare Group and it is great to reach the highest point of the development.
“It has been a very strong partnership and, ultimately, that will bring great community benefits – not only providing a much-needed care home but also creating a significant number of jobs.”
The ceremony was also attended by representatives from Brackley Athletic FC under-9s Girls and 5th Brackley Scout Group (pictured), both of which have received £500 each from the companies behind the development.
Kingsley Healthcare’s chief investment officer, Muj Malik, said: “We are excited to be working on this state-of-the-art care home project in partnership with Deeley Construction.
“Kingsley Healthcare is passionate about providing facilities of the highest quality for residents in our homes.
“We are proud to become part of the Brackley community, providing a valuable amenity and creating more than 100 jobs.”
The development will feature modern en-suite bedrooms and living space for residents as well as communal facilities such as a cinema room, library, café, hairdressing salon, quiet lounges and a conservatory.
