Work is nearing completion on a £12.5m care home in St Annes which will provide work for around 70 people.
The 76 bedroom home on Heyhouses Lane next to Booths, which will be called The Hamptons, is due to open in around three months time.
The external brickwork and roof tiling are complete meaning the building is now watertight, and the 30 plus contractors and tradesmen on site are working on the interior to ensure the development is ready for its planned opening in September.
It was designed by Manchester-based New Care, a development-led care home operators and part of the McGoff Group.
Construction on the former DWP and Premium Bonds site is being undertaken by build partner and principal contractor McGoff and Byrne, also part of the McGoff Group. Bosses say the new building will feature person-centred care including residential, general nursing and specialist dementia care services, in a purpose-built environment.
It will have communal lounges, formal dining rooms and gardens, private bedrooms, complete with en suite wet rooms, and a range of hotel-style services including fine dining, a hair salon, nail bar, concierge and a varied programme of activities and events.
As well as the residential facilities, bosses hope to be able to offer a rehabilitation centre within the two storey building to support the Fylde NHS. CEO at New Care, Chris McGoff, said: “It’s less than three months until we open at The Hamptons and I am delighted with the progress that is being made on site.
“Build is advancing into the final stages and the team is already working on the interior so we’re well on track to complete by our anticipated deadline of early September.”
