  • Added Value:
    The project was situated in an area that was Architecturally sensitive due to the existing care home which is a restored Victorian house. The new care home was therefore required to be sympathetic to existing property whilst complimenting the surrounding area as a whole. This was noted in the form of construction, typically masonry and tile pitch roofs. In order to best reflect the existing surroundings the roof structure was arranged in such a manner that allowed the appearance of pitched roof construction externally but housed flat roofs centrally to the building to accommodate services plant that was shielded from view. The existing topography sloped across the site which offered numerous challenges regarding drainage design and retaining features. Retaining features were rationalised across the site in order to provide a robust design that was also aesthetically pleasing whilst considering tree preservation orders placed upon the site.

Description

The development is situated off Greenhill in Burcot, Bromsgrove and comprises a new 54-bedroom residential care home within the grounds of the existing Burcot Grange care home.

The new home has been designed to complement the existing accommodation for residents with specific care needs, including dementia patients. The building is a 2-storey load bearing masonry structure with localised steel transfer elements. The first-floor construction is formed of pre-cast concrete planks whilst the ground floor is formed from a combination of a ground bearing slab and a suspended beam and block floor system. The roof structure comprises sections of pitched roofs formed with timber trusses and sections of flat roof. The foundation solution is traditional mass concrete strip footings.
