A new 58-bed residential care home for elderly people has been completed in Caterham and named Elizabeth Court. Specialist contractor Castleoak Construction Healthcare has completed the new £2.4 million care home, the first project within an externalisation programme being carried out by Anchor Trust for Surrey County Council. Located at Caterham Village – the new urban village developed by Linden Homes on the site of a former army barracks, which includes residential, retail and commercial accommodation – Elizabeth Court is arranged into five group living units, with all residents having single ensuite bedrooms. As well as designing and building the new home, Castleoak provided all the necessary fixtures, fittings and equipment and, in doing so, has given the residents choice over the furniture and colour schemes in their rooms, which were designed to exceed the new National Standards. Following the completion of the Caterham site, Castleoak has now been awarded a contract to design and build a second home
