Leeds Companies Complete Work On Innovative £10M Retirement Living Village
Leeds companies Adept Civil and Structural Consulting Engineers and Brewster Bye Architects have completed work on a state of the art, £10million extra care facility in Chorley town centre.
The development, known as Primrose Gardens, has 65 high quality, one and two bedroom, apartments, compete with their own kitchens, bathrooms, living space and terraces. There’s also a wide range of amenities including a state-of-the-art sprung dance floor, hair salon and café, which are also open to non-residents.
The three storey building sits in extensive landscaped grounds and is centred around a stunning central atrium. The development was built for Chorley Council and The Eric Wright Group was the main contractor. It’s designed to be dementia friendly and built to Homes England standards, incorporating ‘HAPPI’ principles.
Matthew Ramsden, director at Adept, which provided civil and structural engineering services of the project, said: “Primrose Gardens has set a new benchmark in terms of quality and specification for a retirement living village and has the potential to become a valuable asset for the local community as a whole.
“It’s also going to be a fantastic place to call home, due to it being extremely functional, modern and light, with superb facilities.”
Gareth Jackson from Brewster Bye Architects, which designed the scheme, added: “This is an outstanding development where over 55s can enjoy living independently, but also have 24-hour access to care and support should they need it.
