October 2019 saw the official opening of Bowfell House Care Home in Urmston a project of which Baker Mallett are very proud to have worked on, offering Quantity Surveying, Contract Administration and Principal Designer services respectively.
On behalf of our client the ‘The Knoll Care Group’ the project involved the construction of a 40 bed dementia friendly care home. This modern building offers fantastic facilities for the residents with both the ground and first floors accommodating 20 residents each with communal areas. The second floor offers the necessary space for the employees containing an office, kitchen, laundry and meeting rooms.
Further to this the care home has a lounge, dining and kitchen facilities located on the ground and first floors with an activity room, treatment room, hair salon, bar area, games room and as a reference to the former use of the site the residents can enjoy the use of the private library. There are also two glazed balconies located on the first floor for the residents to use particularly during the summer months.
John Callaghan, of The Knoll Care Group, commented
“Baker Mallett have been an integral part of the team right from inception to project handover in providing a first class service for quantity surveying, contract administration and principal designer services. They provided valuable advice at all stages of the project and were instrumental in introducing us to some of their key associates who have provided funding for these works. They have worked tirelessly throughout the project overcoming some difficult challenges and obstacles. The team from Baker Mallett have assisted enormously in delivering a fantastic facility which will enable us to continue our mission statement of ‘extending family care’ for many years to come”.
