QUINCE COURT, SANDY
During December 2021 we completed and handed over to our client Grand Union Housing Group, the final apartments of our 25 apartment extension at Quince Court, Sandy. This brings the total to 55 modern self-contained units on this Extra Care Scheme.
The two year Design and Build project on the existing site included the demolition of existing facilities and the construction of the additional apartments, together with dining and kitchen facilities, extensive landscaping and refurbishment of the existing communal facilities.
The project included a number of unique features that required our design skills in overcoming the planning architects design aspirations, extensive elevated walkways, large unsupported roof overhangs, external lift, balconies, multiple external finishes, all combined to test our design and build skills. The scheme was designed with accessibility in mind, with all areas being wheelchair friendly and accessible for those with a disability.
The final project, with a Contract Value approaching £4m, is a unique addition to Grand Union Housing Group’s Extra Care portfolio and we understand the facilities and apartments are proving very popular with the residents.
