The creation of a new residential home for Care UK as part of a modern care village, designed to support contemporary independent living

The Recreation Road Development scheme in Bromsgrove, led by Stepnell, brings together several sites to create a new three-plot residential scheme incorporating social housing, retirement living and care.

Having completed the initial phase social housing scheme for Bromsgrove District Housing Trust, our extensive experience in the care sector led to the award of a contract with Care UK – the UK’s largest independent provider of health and social care, to deliver the second phase of the development.

The resulting £6.7 million, purpose-built, four-storey care home provides full time residential, nursing and specialist dementia for up to 81 residents, with facilities including a cinema, café, hairdressing salon, as well as hobby and leisure spaces. Secure, fully-accessible, landscaped outdoor areas also integrate sensory gardens, water features and seating.

Traditionally constructed using load-bearing masonry and precast planks, the building is configured in a series of individual suites, each with a dedicated lounge/dining room.
