Current Developments

Estuary View, Whitstable Phase 1

Our planning application is for an Integrated Community Healthcare Centre (ICHC) and a care home for the elderly. The ICHC building consists of 101 en-suites with communal areas and ancillary accommodation. On the ground floor there is also a Day Care Centre providing care for approximately 20 people and CHOC- Community Hub Operational Centre.

The aim of ICHC is to provide additional capacity to care for complex patients without the need for A&E/ acute admission. This would enable a new diagnostic, assessment and treatment facility with modern care suites that are equiped to deliver high level of care. It would be an enhanced extension of their own primary care but providing dedicated medical, nursing and therapy support within one building.

The care home building consists of 102 en-suites, communal areas and ancillary accommodation. The proposal has been designed to incorporate our approach to care provision, along with a respectful approach to the existing built environment and local environment.

A full planning application will be placed in the last quarter of 2016.

Broomfield House, Chelmsford

Planning Approval has been granted for a new 90suite care home with retail unit and day centre, with a start on site anticipated for April 2017.

The four storey building is composed of two identical wings joined by a central block, which steps back at each floor providing accessible roof terraces. Each wing building is subdivided into smaller blocks, which, by changing direction, enables to eliminate monotony of a linear arrangement and to create smaller landscaped gardens around. The glazed façade of the central block, with roof terraces overlooking the central access to site, and glazed ends of each wing, are designed to break up the building mass and provide effect of lightness and transparency.

Terraces and balconies, with light glazed balustrades and abundance of potted plants, are the important architectural feature in this environmentally friendly and responsible building.
