Deeley Construction & Robothams were appointed by WCS Care to design & build an inspirational new care home at their site on Spinney Hill in Warwick
WCS are a ‘not for profit’ care provider operating 13 homes solely in Warwickshire with an unprecedented five Care Quality Commission ‘Outstanding’ ratings. They have a national reputation for the quality of their care and for innovation.
Their brief to Deeley was to create a home for residents living with dementia that would enhance their quality of life. On this scheme we constructed a facility that created individual households accommodating 6 to 7 residents in each area.
Each household has its own kitchen, dining and living spaces designed to be domestic in scale which encourages residents to socialise and participate in preparing their own meals.
With its own external front door onto the site’s central courtyard, all of these features enhance the quality of life for the residents.
Central facilities include a shop, laundry and café which are presented to the residents with shop fronts and signage.
Deeley Construction undertook a value engineering exercise prior to the contract start with the clients representatives and also managed the demolition of the former Woodside premises.
“The excitement is building as construction work begins on our inspirational new home in Warwick, which will feature many of the ideas and approaches that have already had a positive impact on health and wellbeing in our other homes.”Christine Asbury, WCS Care’s Chief Executive
