RMBI Care Co. Invests £16m In New-Build Care Home In Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk

Planning permission has been granted for a new-build care home in Bury St Edmunds.

Care provider RMBI Care Co. is investing £16m to build a new care home on the site of its current Home, Cornwallis Court, which received an ‘Outstanding’ rating by the Care Quality Commission in August 2023.

With a sustainable approach in mind, the new care home will be designed and created to meet the changing needs of older people. The latest technologies will be available to support up to 64 people with residential care, nursing and residential dementia care.

The layout will include four house groups to create a more homely environment. Each space will feature 16 bedrooms with full en-suite wet rooms, varied communal spaces and an enclosed landscape garden to support residents’ health and wellbeing.

The build will commence in April 2024 in a series of phases to enable residents and staff to continue living and working in the existing building, before moving across to the new Home as each phase is completed. Full completion is expected by 2027.

Mark LLoyd, Managing Director at RMBI Care Co., said: “We’re passionate about supporting older people, so we’re always thinking about how we can support our residents’ needs now, and as they change in the future.

“We plan to create and build a new care home with modern spaces that evolve with our residents alongside assistive technologies and a personal approach to our care.”

RMBI Care Co. secured a sustainable retail charity bond in February 2023 to help develop, modernise and expand its support for older people. This will also be the charity’s second investment in a new-build care home, following the completion of Prince Philip Duke of Edinburgh Court, in Berkshire, in 2022. Both projects have been designed by Architects Carless + Adams.
