Leading regional contractor Stepnell has been chosen by developer Frontier to create two ‘new generation’ care homes in Bedfordshire.
Each of the 75-bed homes will have its own cinema room and gym, a café, hair and beauty salon, guest accommodation and a children’s play area for visitors.
Stepnell construction director Bill Haynes said: “These two facilities will help answer the significant need for high-quality, care home accommodation in Bedfordshire, providing modern, beautifully designed living spaces for residents.
“We are delighted to have been chosen by Frontier as its construction partner to help realise its vision by creating these superb new developments.”
Construction has begun on the schemes which have been designed by architects Harris Irwin Associates. Both projects are due for completion in May 2019.
Bill added: “The company brings to these schemes significant specialist expertise in delivering care homes of the highest quality. We have extremely experienced teams working on each scheme, with both projects overseen by our award-winning project manager John Neill.”
John was a gold medal winner at the Chartered Institute of Building’s 2017 Construction Manager of the Year Awards and won the Public Infrastructure & Healthcare category of the awards.
