How Bowgreave Rise keeps residents HAPPI

Rebecca Stuart-Jack, marketing assistant at architects PRP, discusses the design ethos and construction process behind a new £6m care home project in Lancashire

Situated just south of the Lancaster Canal, within the idyllic rural landscape of Garstang, is Bowgreave Rise care home. This new facility offers a tranquil retreat to residents of surrounding villages, amidst green infrastructure and open countryside. Settled neatly in the grounds of Bowgreave Rise, the 45-bed home officially opened in September 2023, replacing the outdated 1967 structure in a highly sustainable, purpose-built establishment that champions dementia care.

Developed by PRP, the £6m project prioritises wellbeing, sustainability, and contemporary design to accommodate residents with varying needs. James Kelly of PRP led the project in collaboration with contractors, Eric Wright Construction. In October 2021, a groundbreaking ceremony marked the beginning of a 17-month construction period. Seamless teamwork between PRP and Eric Wright Construction, along with dedication to meet evolving needs and expectations of residents, has allowed Bowgreave Rise to continue enriching the lives of residents and the local community.

When Lancashire County Council initiated discussions with PRP in 2020, they expressed concern about the existing care home's ability to meet modern expectations. Despite a rating of 'Good' from the CQC, the existing home was dated, lacking essential amenities such as individual bathrooms and adequate space.
