Projects: Clee Road, Cleethorpes
The project relates to the change of use of the former school building(s) into a state of the art Care facility, providing care for residents with dementia and those with nursing needs. The Building is of Local Heritage Importance and as such consultation has taken place throughout the design development stage with the Local Authority’s Conservation Officer.
The scheme will principally take the form of a refurbishment and retention of the existing 1920’s building along with the demolition of the most recent extensions and their replacement by new single storey extensions to the rear courtyards.
Internally the building is split into two homes. The nursing care home will comprise 40 bedrooms and wet room en-suites and the dementia home will consist of 38 bedrooms and wet room en-suites. Each home will have its own dining area, lounge, conservatory and washroom facilities. A communal activity hall, rehabilitation gym, hair & beauty salon, cinema, shop & cafe, post office and bar are also provided in the central core section. Each home will also have the benefit of two private garden area’s formed within the courtyards and towards the rear of the site.
Externally it was key to preserve the fabric and setting of the existing 1920’s structure and as such the principle facades remain largely untouched. New entrance ways will be provided to the existing doorways in order to make the home fully accessible to all. The existing retained structure will be enhanced by new extensions which have been designed to complement the existing building in both its use of materials and scale / massing.
The site will be fully landscaped and improvements will be made to the entrance ways, parking provisions and vehicular movement around the site.
The scheme achieved full Planing Approval in March 2014. Construction commenced in Spring 2015 and the project was completed in September 2016. In March 2017 the home WON the Pinders Healthcare Design Award Care Home Of The Year in the Regeneration Project section! This is a prestigious award which takes in to account the whole of the UK.
Client Testimony: “We have worked with Fluid Design Associates for our last two New Build Care Home projects, where they saw the sites through to completion. We have also worked on other sites with Andrew and Matt, gaining planning permission for three other Care Homes.
They have a fantastic understanding of Healthcare Design, given their extensive experience in the sector, and provide a detailed and committed service throughout the development. We would recommend speaking with Fluid Design should you have any upcoming Healthcare projects”.
