South West Residential care home market tipped to expand further
14 March 2018 by Katie Ciechorska
Helm Construction are anticipating a steep increase in demand for retirement accommodation as older people look to downsize or make room for relatives in the family home.
The firm is building up its commercial team in response to a sustained rise in orders for new residential and care homes up and down the M4 and M5 corridors.
Director Jon Ticehurst said: “We will hand over a major new build housing scheme at Minchinhampton next month and are about to start on another larger scheme in Fairford.
“Both schemes demand a tactful and discrete approach keeping disturbance, dust and noise to the absolute minimum.
“We hold regular updates with the complex managers to detail progress and forthcoming activities to inform the local residents of any potential disruptions.
“We are confident the experience we have gained in handling these demanding projects stands us in good stead for the inevitable boom in accommodation for our ageing communities.”
Helm Construction will complete seven new homes at the Stuart Court luxury retirement complex in Minchinhampton. The new homes include Cotswold stone walls, stone window surrounds, render panels and large glazed vaulted rooves.
The English Courtyard retirement scheme is designed to the highest specification and promises ‘Smart living for the un-retired’.
