Posted on March 13th, by geoff in Caring Times. Comments Off on Stepnell building two care homes for Frontier

Regional contractor Stepnell has been chosen by care home developer Frontier to build two care homes in Bedfordshire.

Each home will have 75 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms as well as communal spaces for dining, relaxing and socialising. Each home will have its own cinema room and gym, a café, hair and beauty salon, guest accommodation and a children’s play area for visitors.

Stepnell’s team in Rugby has just started work on the two construction contracts in Flitwick and Stotfold – each worth £8m – designed by architects Harris Irwin Associates. Each home is set for completion in May 2019.

Stepnell construction director Bill Haynes said the two facilities would help answer the significant need for high-quality, care home accommodation in Bedfordshire.

“The company brings to these schemes significant specialist expertise in delivering care homes of the highest quality,” said Mr Haynes.

“We have extremely experienced teams working on each scheme, with both projects overseen by our award-winning project manager John Neill.”

John was a gold medal winner at the Chartered Institute of Building’s 2017 Construction Manager of the Year Awards and won the Public Infrastructure & Healthcare category of the awards.
