Octopus Healthcare is delighted to announce the completion of a new deal to fund the construction of a 64 bedroom care home in Fulford, York. Using in-house development expertise, Octopus Healthcare secured the land and planning permission for the £11m care home development, which will be forward funded by the Octopus Healthcare Fund.
Award-winning McGoff Construction will deliver the development for Barchester Healthcare to lease and operate at completion. The state-of-the-art care home will replace an old facility at Fordlands, York, and the McGoff team have worked closely with Octopus Healthcare, Barchester and the City of York to design a suitable scheme that is sympathetic with the surrounding areas.
Declan McGoff, Operations Director at McGoff Construction, comments: “We are once again delighted to be working with Octopus Healthcare and Barchester to deliver a stunning, state-of-the-art 64 bedroom care home in Fulford. We are already working on similar projects for Octopus and Barchester in Melbourn, Cambridgeshire and for Barchester in Eastbourne and Denmead with others to follow in the coming months, so to add York to the portfolio is great news. We find both organisations very professional and a pleasure to deal with.”
Richard Dooley, Development Director at Octopus Healthcare, said “This genuinely was a team effort in obtaining the planning permission for the development. We worked closely with the local authority and local community to design a much needed facility for the local area. Our professional team worked diligently to really make sure that we are creating a great future for the health population of Fulford. This is a great example of how we can add value to our operator partnerships securing sites and planning.”
“We are delighted with this acquisition for Octopus Healthcare Fund,” says Freddie Richards, Investment Director at Octopus Healthcare. “We carefully select our partners to make sure we’re teamed up with operators and developers who truly understand what best in class elderly care looks like. Both Barchester Healthcare and McGoff Construction have an enviable track record in the sector and needless to say we are delighted to be partnered with them here.”
