Octopus Healthcare to fund £11m Barchester care home development
Octopus Healthcare has secured the land and planning permission for a £11m Barchester care home development in York.
The 64-bed home in Fulford, which replaces an existing facility, is being developed by McGoff Construction.
Richard Dooley, Development Director at Octopus Healthcare, said: “This genuinely was a team effort in obtaining the planning permission for the development. We worked closely with the local authority and local community to design a much needed facility for the local area.
“Our professional team worked diligently to really make sure that we are creating a great future for the health population of Fulford. This is a great example of how we can add value to our operator partnerships securing sites and planning.”
The home will be arranged over three floors, and built to traditional construction methods on piled foundations with a part basement for plant. The eternal façade has been specifically designed to reflect York’s architectural heritage, incorporating red facings, timber cladding, timber window and doors as well as slate-style roof coverings.
Declan McGoff, Operations Director at McGoff Construction, said: “We are once again delighted to be working with Octopus Healthcare and Barchester to deliver a stunning, state-of-the-art 64 bedroom care home in Fulford.
“We are already working on similar projects for Octopus and Barchester in Melbourn, Cambridgeshire and for Barchester in Eastbourne and Denmead with others to follow in the coming months, so to add York to the portfolio is great news. We find both organisations very professional and a pleasure to deal with.”
