Castleoak breaks new ground with £6m care home development

64-home being built in Chelmsford, Essex

Castleoak has announced a £6m turnkey care home development in Chelmsford.

The deal is Castleoak’s first with leading housing association, One Housing. The home will be marketed under One Housing’s new luxury senior living brand, Baycroft.

Commenting on the new project, Andrew Winstanley, care home project director at One Housing, said: “Baycroft homes will offer outstanding care, service and facilities for residents in a luxury environment. With Castleoak’s experience in the sector, we are certain they will deliver the high-quality homes we expect for our expanding portfolio.”

Doug Jones, development director at Castleoak, added: “We identified and acquired an attractive development site in Chelmsford for One Housing then achieved planning permission. We look forward to now delivering a care home that meets the aspirations of the Baycroft brand and our purpose to deliver quality living space for customers.”

The new 64-bed care home, designed and built by Castleoak, will include a pre-fabricated timber frame manufactured at Castleoak’s in-house ISO9001 standard factory. Built to a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ standard, the home will open in autumn 2017 offering nursing and specialist dementia care.
