The McGoff group is celebrating the completion of its innovative intergenerational development in Lymm, Cheshire.
The £15m development – the first of its kind in the North West – features a 66-bed care centre, 45 retirement apartments, and a children’s day nursery.
Residents from Statham Manor Care Centre and Minerva Place retirement apartments joined children from Back to the Garden Childcare and McGoff representatives to celebrate the completion of the two-year project and plant a red robin tree.
The project was designed by the McGoff Group and delivered by McGoff Construction in partnership with Panacea Building Systems and McGoff Group Facilities Services. The development will enable young and old to spend time in each other’s company and enjoy proven heath, social, and wellbeing benefits.
Statham Manor is being operated by the McGoff’s award-winning care home provider New Care while the nursery is being run by Back to the Garden Childcare, McGoff’s child-led nursery concept focussing on active learning and outdoor play. McGoff’s residential brand Villafont is running the retirement apartments.
Dave McGoff, chairman of McGoff Group Projects, said: “It’s fantastic to be able to stand here with the new residents of this development and celebrate its completion. Lymm has been a special project for us. Not only was it the realisation of a concept that we believe so passionately in, but also because it has brought together so many parts of our business model. It is incredibly exciting to see it finally come to life and we hope it can set a blueprint for similar schemes in the future.”
