Project: 50 No Bed Care Home New Build Development
Contract Duration: On-going
Contract Sum: Undisclosed.
Varco had been approached by Clients in possession of a vacant site in Barry, South Wales. The team had been instructed to provide design services for a Care Home development.
The scheme placed some challenges to the design development with a large rock feature restricting the scale and massing of development permitted on the site. Numerous design concepts had been produced and developed over a 5-6 month period, with various consultations having taken place with the Local Planning Authority.
Our team at Varco, along with Harmers Planning Consultants, finally secured planning permission in April 2012 for a 50 bedroom care home development. The design of this development aims to provide a conventional looking building which remains subservient to its surrounding, with a touch of modern features bringing it into the 21st century.
