The £5m contract is the second care home project awarded to GB Building Solutions by Care UK. The development site is within the walled gardens of the Grade II listed Abney Hall. The project involves the demolition of an existing office block and the construction of a new building designed for the care of older people.
Work is expected to last 62 weeks.
The building will provide 80 en-suite bedrooms with communal areas and additional facilities to include: a ground floor ‘village walk', cinema, hairdresser, spa, library, internet study, café and restaurant. The building will contain CHP plant, a number of green roofs and a sustainable drainage solution to help improve the local pond to which surface water will discharge into.
GB Group chairman and chief executive Martin Smout said: "Abney Court Care Home will provide a much needed care facility to older people in the Cheadle area. GB Group have been involved from the start of this project and the GB Building Solutions' team will continue to work with Care UK to ensure we deliver a high quality building; one that residents and staff enjoy living in and being part of."
