Care home developer Frontier Estates has chosen Stepnell to build its new care homes in Ampthill Road, Flitwick and Hitchin Road, Stotfold.
Each home will have 75 bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms, as well as communal spaces for dining and socialising.
Each contract is worth £8m to Stepnell, which has now started work on both sites. Each is set for completion in May 2019.
Stepnell construction director Bill Haynes said: “These two facilities will help answer the significant need for high-quality, care home accommodation in Bedfordshire, providing modern, beautifully designed living spaces for residents.”
