Elmhurst Care Home

Elmhurst Care Home is an existing residential care unit that was to be modernised to provide up to date short term care. This involved remodelling to create hotel style bedrooms with en suite facilities, communal rooms, ancillary accommodation such as assisted bathrooms, kitchen etc.

The building was occupied throughout the duration of the works and therefore the work were phased to allow parts of the building to remain in use during the works.

The works were generally of internal alterations to the building layout affecting structural elements, the building fabric and services. There was some associated external works related to new drainage connections for en suites facilities, services etc.

“(We were) impressed with the quality of construction executed by Parkinsons as well as the way in which the building’s size and arrangement respected the proportions of the local streetscape whilst providing space in ingenious ways.”
