Restful Homes Group

St. Giles Care Home, Birmingham

Project Value: £290,000.00

 

Carter Construction was appointed as the main contractor for the extension and partial refurbishment of an existing care home for the elderly.

The construction involved auger piling and reinforced ground beams, traditional masonry construction with beam and block flooring, traditional roof construction, upvc windows and external doors, integrated M&E services and complete internal finishes.

As well as the usual statutory considerations this project faced some unusual interfaces, including liaison with airways control and construction over a public sewer.

Working in an extremely sensitive, fully operational environment, Carter Construction took maximum precautions to ensure the protection and comfort of all staff, in-patients and general public.

This contract was awarded through a competitive tender, under a Design & Build form of contract. Works were completed on time and within budget, to the

satisfaction of all involved.
