Merton Care Home Reprovision

Client - Central & Cecil

As part of The London Borough of Merton’s externalisation programme Central & Cecil Housing Trust took over the operation of 3 care homes. Following detailed feasibility studies it was concluded that the most cost effective solution would be to demolish each home in turn and to design new 45, 52, and 64 bed homes which would exceed the National Minimum Standards.

The redevelopment was carried out by completing one building at a time over a 3 year period with the largest of the homes including a Day Centre to serve the local community. The redevelopment was completed on time and on budget using the ACA Project Partnering Agreement.
