National care provider, Barchester Healthcare, marked the start of their newest care home builds at three new sites around the country. Adding to their portfolio of over 200 care homes and 6 independent hospitals, the company recently broke ground for the first time at three new sites in Solihull, Eastbourne and Sherborne.
The new Solihull home, located at the old Shirley Aquatics site, is under construction by Seddon Construction Ltd, and will accommodate 80 people in the Solihull community with care needs. The Eastbourne project, under construction by McGoff Construction Ltd, will have 80 beds and the Sherborne home, located on Bradford Road, is under construction by Acheson Construction Ltd, and will have 64 beds to accommodate residents in the Sherborne area.
Director of Property Services at Barchester Mark Bennett said: “My colleagues and I were very impressed with work we saw at the latest Barchester sites. We’re pleased to be working with three different construction teams to build our new signature Barchester homes, all designed with a high specification. Each new care home will be a positive addition to the communities we are building in, where we can deliver personalised care for those that need it, and provide employment for those that are passionate about caring for others.”
Andy Williams, Senior Property Development Manager at Barchester Healthcare said: “We are very excited about the construction of our new care homes. All have their own unique design that suits the surrounding areas, but all share innovative Barchester trademarks that will accommodate our prospective residents, who will be able to enjoy a beautiful home with landscaped outdoor spaces.”
