Work begins on Merton redevelopment


Posted on January 1st, by editor in Caring Times. No Comments

Work has begun to bring the first of three new care homes to the London Borough of Merton. Specialist contractor Castleoak Construction Healthcare has been awarded a contract to build the first of three homes being developed by London-based Central & Cecil Housing Trust. A 52-bed residential care home will occupy a three-storey building in Raynes Park, Merton, to be named “Link House” and will be built on the site of the original Link House home. All rooms will be single with ensuite facilities and the design has been developed to meet the Fit for the Future required standards. Castleoak will provide all furniture, fittings and equipment, and will hand the building over to Central & Cecil Housing Trust ready to operate. The Link House development is Castleoak¹s first contract with Central and Cecil Housing Trust, which has been selected by the London Borough of Merton to redevelop three existing homes. The sites will be redeveloped one by one over the next five years and will ultimately provide 159 bed space
