Full refurbishment and extension of high dependency care home
Craegmoor Healthcare Ltd
RDF was appointed to carry out full refurbishment and extension of existing buildings, the creation of additional parking and the erection of a summer house within the grounds
This project demanded the most vigilant health & safety and programme planning as all works were completed whilst the care home was in full occupation. The facility is home to a number of high dependency mental health residents and it was important to minimise noise and disruption to established routines. The lead up to commencing on site was therefore very important. Our contracts manager, site manager and health & safety manager liaising closely with the care home’s professional team. As residents had to be moved from their rooms to allow for refurbishment, we drew up a programme and timetable which would allow residents the opportunity to become acclimatised to their new environment and agreed a longer programme with our client in order to ensure minimum stress and disruption to residents
Works included the full refurbishment and extension of the existing facility, the creation of additional car parking, the erection of a summer house in the grounds and landscaping
“The extension and refurbishment to Carlton House and cottage to provide a total of 11 bedrooms all with en-suite facilities, including the formation of additional car parking and the erection of a summer house within the grounds. All works were undertaken whilst the service users and staff were in occupation.
Further to the recent completion of the above project I felt that I needed to write and thank you, your site staff and operatives personally for the professional way in which the project was undertaken. To carry out work of this nature requires both high levels of organisation and planning incorporating strong health and safety principles. All of which were taken on with an exceptional level of care towards the service users and the need to maintain a stable living environment for them. This project was a huge success and this was attributable to you embracing the strict project criteria established by Craegmoor in conjunction with your own internal procedures and high standards. Once again, many thanks and I look forward to working with you shortly on the new projects we have ordered.” Regional Property Manager, Craegmoor Healthcare Ltd
