With the number of over 60’s expected to increase by seven million in the next twenty years and the over 75’s to rise in number by 47%, the demand for care and nursing home places continues to grow. In building better homes for our old age population, GPS have been involved in several major projects, including the extension and renovation of existing establishments and outdated facilities that focuses on how independent living can be achieved by design.
Just one of our many ‘assisted living’ projects includes The Laurels Nursing Home. This build comprised of an extension to provide additional twenty-two bedrooms and ancillary accommodation. Whilst the works were being carried out, a great deal of care was taken to minimise the disruption to the residents and staff.
