Farrans Construction latest development will be built on the site of the former leisure centre in Flitwick, Bedfordshire, and will include a 72-bed care home, 8-bed short stay unit and 88 independent living apartments for the over 55s.
Designed by architects Oliver and Robb, the building will be constructed to the highest sustainable standards using Passivhaus criteria to deliver a super energy efficient building. Work on the site is due to start shortly with the care home and independent living apartments due to complete in Autumn 2023.
The core building is designed to meet dementia-friendly guidelines and the best of energy performance standards, known as Passivhaus, to deliver the healthiest of environments and help reduce the Council’s energy demands in the future.
Cathal Montague, Regional Director at Farrans, said: “ We have recently started construction on Marigold House in Leighton Buzzard and we are approaching completion on Hendon Hall for Signature Living. Our team will be bringing our expertise and knowledge of the senior living sector to this older persons’ village, meeting dementia-friendly guidelines and incorporating the highest standards of sustainability to achieve Passivhaus accreditation.”
