BCAL Consulting were delighted to have been chosen by Wellingborough Homes to provide Civil, Structural and CDM Co-ordinator services on the redevelopment of Knights Court.
The project included the demolition of an existing 2-storey building, the construction of 2- and 3-storey building providing 40 high quality, modern, self-contained apartments. Three 3-storey blocks of apartments were also refurbished.
Specific apartments have been designated for wheelchair users, and include features such as adjustable height kitchens.
The development also provides communal facilities, including an arts and craft lounge, library and music room, a treatment room and hair salon, laundry rooms, lifts and two assisted bathrooms.
Accessible landscaping around the scheme includes a level access route, and raised beds where residents can get involved in caring for their outside space. As well as being tailored to meet the needs of the more vulnerable residents, the wider community can also benefit from the extended facilities.
