Contractor Kori Construction, based in Corby, Northamptonshire, has been appointed to deliver a third care home project for Care UK.

The project involves transforming a former industrial site in Saffron Walden into a £10m, 70-bed care home.

The scheme is part of a larger development on the disused pulse packaging site on Radwinter Road, which will also include a Lidl supermarket and retirement living accommodation.

Construction on the care home began in April this year, with completion expected in winter 2025.

Jordan Connachie, managing director of Kori Construction, said: “Care UK is synonymous with the highest quality later life, residential and dementia care and so much of this is because of the beautiful environments their care homes provide.

“Being selected as a trusted partner to turn their vision into a reality is a badge of honour for Kori Construction and a responsibility we take extremely seriously. By delivering these projects, we’re delivering more than just a care home. We’re creating a sense of place, a community, and an environment where people feel safe, included and cared for. This is what drives the team at Kori, knowing that in partnership with Care UK, we’re help to improve people’s lives.”
