Topping-out ceremony for new Hallmark care home

Spring opening for Essex facility

A major milestone has been marked at a new 77-bed Hallmark care home in Hutton, Essex, which will provide residential, nursing and dementia care when it opens next spring.

The construction team from Hallmark company, Savista Developments, and other stakeholders recently attended the site to watch as the final roof tile was laid.

Hutton View Care Home is being built on the same 3.3-acre site as the care group’s new 55-bed assisted living scheme, at a cost of £23m.

Facilities at the home will include; a cinema, music room, hairdressers and therapy room.

And each bedroom will have an en-suite bathroom, and many of those on the ground floor will have access to their own patio.

Other communal areas include a café, a celebrations room, a farmhouse kitchen and several dining rooms which will enable relatives to have a meal with residents on occasion.

Outside there will be landscaped gardens with 77 newly-planted trees and a sensory walk for residents and visitors to enjoy.

Avnish Goyal, Hallmark chairman, said: “We are excited to be able to create a luxurious and engaging new care community in Hutton and to have built this in partnership with our sister construction company, Savista Developments.

“Hutton View Care Home will provide residents with a place where they feel safe and supported to live an active and fulfilled life.”

Hutton View is scheduled to open its doors to its first residents in spring next year. The assisted living development is expected to open in autumn.

The new development will be Hallmark’s 21st care home and first venture into assisted living.
