Construction to start on new Birkdale Care Home
Demolition of the derelict former school known as Sunshine House on Oxford Road in Merseyside has completed this week, revealing beach-style ground conditions due to its close proximity to the Birkdale sand dunes.
This approx. 2 acre site has been cleared to make way for a new Belong Village, providing a range of facilities for the local community, as well as accommodating more than 100 people in a choice of specialist 24-hour care households or supported living apartments.
Belong is an award-winning, non-for-profit organisation, specialising in support older people to lead the lives they choose in vibrant community villages across the North of England.
Kevin Smith, CPC Associate Partner said “We are proud to be part of the project team, acting as Employer’s Agent, on behalf of Belong, to deliver much needed accommodation, specialist dementia care and day care facilities for the local community in Birkdale.”
Work on the £11m scheme is due to complete at the end of 2019.
