A topping out ceremony has been held for Avery Healthcare’s new £8m care home in Braintree, Essex.
The traditional industry event, held in February to mark the competition of the home’s roof - a significant project milestone - was attended by the client team and firms involved in the construction. Attendees included Adrian Doyle, director of developments at Avery Healthcare, and members of the project delivery team, including the construction manager at main contractor Horizon Construction, Adam French, project manager at Holden & Lee, Craig Lavery, and director at Harniss Consulting, Darren Harris.
Avery Healthcare, one of the largest care home providers in the UK, is on track to open Braintree Mews Care Home in the summer. The prestigious development on Church Lane, Braintree, Essex, located next to the former site of Braintree College, will create what Avery Healthcare calls ‘a modern and carefully considered’ 75-bed facility. Braintree Mews will include a cinema, activity room, dual occupancy rooms, and landscaped grounds.
Managing director at Horizon Construction, Phil Holding, said: “We are delighted to reach another important milestone in this project. As a leader in its sector, we are proud to be entrusted with Avery Healthcare’s latest care home and are looking forward to completing another high-quality healthcare solution.”
