Two Luxury Care Homes Delivered In Bedfordshire

Construction News Image
A total of 150 care home places have been created in Bedfordshire with the introduction of two new luxury developments.

Two new £9 million care homes were built in Flitwick and Fairfield, featuring 75 bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms and stylish communal spaces for dining, socialising and relaxing.

Contractor Stepnell worked with care home developer Frontier and care home provider Baycroft to deliver the projects.

Designed by architects Harris Irwin Associates, each home boasts its own cinema room, gym, café, hair and beauty salon as well as high-quality guest accommodation and a children's play area for visitors.

Rob Speirs, Stepnell's Rugby regional director, said: "We were delighted to have been chosen by Frontier as its construction partner and we are so pleased to have delivered these care homes to a high specification that meets the individual needs of residents.

"Stepnell is continuing to increase its portfolio of high-end luxury care homes in the UK, with health and care being one of our biggest sectors. Our delivery teams and care specialists understand how the final details of the finish make a practical difference to the buildings and residents, and we are really proud to have helped provide this modern, beautifully designed living space."

Luke Harris, head of construction for Frontier, added: "Today marks the culmination of many months of hard work and dedication from the Stepnell team. John Neil and his team have worked tirelessly to provide two landmark care homes befitting of the contemporary brand and vision of our care home partner Baycroft.

"We are absolutely delighted to have witnessed these schemes develop from the ground into the contemporary, high end care homes they have become. These homes are half of the portfolio we are delivering for Baycroft and we look forward to seeing the buildings fully operational in the near future."
