Contractor delivers £9m care home

Clegg Construction has handed over a new 65-bedroom care home to Barchester Healthcare.

The £9m Highfield Care Home at Barkston Ash in North Yorkshire is on the former Scarthingwell Park Estate and replaces an ageing care home which had previously been on the site.

The new two-storey facilities include lounge, dining and communal areas and will provide 24-hour residential care, as well as specialist care for those living with dementia.

Darren Chapman, operations director at Clegg Construction, said: “Highfield Care Home is in an idyllic location, with peaceful and picturesque surroundings which will provide future residents with a sense of well-being.

“It is less than five minutes away from Tadcaster and all the services and facilities that the town offers.

“Clegg Construction is proud to have delivered such a wonderful scheme for Barchester Healthcare, which has a reputation for providing high quality, person-centred care services in superior care environments.”

The team on the Highfield Care Home scheme working alongside Clegg Construction included project manager and quantity surveyor Holden & Lee, architect Harris Irwin Architects, structural engineer Cameron Darroch Associates and M&E consultant Harniss.

Senior property development manager for Barchester Healthcare, Michael Coggin, said: “We’re now welcoming residents to our stunning new care home in Tadcaster.

“Not only will our residents have a home set in beautiful grounds, the new home will also offer a range of job prospects boosting employment in the neighbouring areas.”
