Kori Construction secures Porthaven project

Kori Construction has been appointed to a £12.2m scheme that will see the site of a former Milton Keynes fire station turned into a care home.

Kori was awarded the contract by Porthaven Care Homes after being appointed to a similar project for the provider in Harpenden, Hertfordshire.

Demolition of the former fire station, which has stood empty since 2020, has already been completed. It will be replaced by a four-storey, 75-bed care home which will provide comprehensive care services for older people as well as those living with dementia. Development will take around 18 months to complete.

Kori Construction MD Jordan Connachie said: “We’re delighted to be working with Porthaven Care Homes again, to bring forward this much-needed development.

“The scheme has been designed as a high-quality landmark building which will provide a safe and relaxed environment for residents, both inside and out. Residents will also benefit from a range of first class amenities as well as main views that look out across green space.

“Couple this with the high standard of care Porthaven is renowned for providing, and it will be a fantastic asset to the local community.”

Steve Rickard, development director at Porthaven Care Homes, commented: “We are delighted to be delivering another stunning purpose-built care home and sincerely look forward to embedding ourselves into the community.

“Professional and empathetic care is what Porthaven does best, and our team of compassionate staff are dedicated to the wellbeing, comfort and dignity of every single person in our care.

“We look forward to providing high-quality residential, nursing and dementia care from summer 2025.”
