Park House Nursing Home, Sandy

Park House Nursing Home, Sandy

We were delighted to win the contract to extend Park House Nursing Home in Sandy, a neighbouring town to our office in Potton, Bedfordshire.

Park House Nursing Home is based in a Grade 2 listed building, so any construction projects are strictly controlled and have to adhere to rules relating to style and materials used. At Hutchinson Builders, we are very experienced in working with listed buildings and their inherent complexities.

This extension would allow Park House to accommodate 29 people and also upgrade some of the current facilities to make the home a more pleasant environment for its residents.

The project consisted of an extension which comprised of six bedrooms, four of which had en-suite wet rooms, as well as a relaxing day room for the residents.

A complete re-wire to include cord pull alarm systems, as well as upgrading the existing heating system.

For the duration of our project, the nursing home was fully operational, so it was essential that we worked sympathetically, in order to ensure minimal disruption for the residents and staff. Part of this was to ensure the current heating system remained functional throughout the upgrade, as the works were carried out over the winter and throughout spring.

Externally we added attractive soffit lights which light up the building at night, creating a warm and inviting glow for visitors, residents and staff.

The existing wall was in need of attention so we built a beautiful Sandstone wall and also laid a Yorkstone terrace, which is an attractive addition to the home.

Park House Nursing Home provides residential care for people who want to live independently with minimal support and also for those who require care with nursing. It was a pleasure to work with them.
