Contractor Cruden Construction is set to complete the work on Birkdale’s new £19 million state-of-the-art care village, following its appointment by leading care operator, Belong.
With a strong background in care sector construction, Cruden takes over the reins from original contractor, Pochin, who had been working on the Oxford Road development when it went into administration last year.
Once complete, it will be the fifth Belong village built by Cruden in the last decade, including sites in Didsbury and Crewe.
Expected to open in 2021, the Birkdale village will provide class-leading dementia care and high-specification accommodation for over 100 people, including 24-hour support across six extended family sized households and 30, one and two bedroom, independent living apartments, which are available to buy or rent.
Managing Director of Cruden Construction, Ian Woolrich, added: “We are thrilled to have secured a fifth project with Belong and look forward to resuming work on the Birkdale development. We take great pride in the fact that every village we build together is creating a place that will deliver real benefit to the local area and its people.”
