The BUPA care home forms part of the multimillion pound Edgbaston Medical Quarter; a development of the entire 27 acre Pebble Mill site on the BBC Crèche site within their former television studios in Birmingham. The project involves the design and build of a 62 bed ensuite residential dementia care home.
The L shaped building provides a range of services including long and short-term care for elderly and dementia sufferers. Facilities will include ancillary communal areas, dining areas, family areas, medical/therapy rooms, cinema, activity suites and a hair salon.
The scheme will also feature secure gardens, external landscaping, on-site parking and a roof garden on the second floor.
Varying materials were used for the external finishes of the building including natural slate hangings, brick, timber cladding and render. It is a steel framed construction with pre-cast concrete stairs and landings. The project commenced on site August 2016 and is due for completion in October 2017.
