Millachip Court, ExtraCare

This Extra Care project for the Arena Housing Group and supported Department of Health funding was a phased development to enable the existing residents to remain on site. A new build wing providing 21 flats as well as communal facilities was completed within the first year, followed by the refurbishment and remodelling of 41 sheltered flats in the existing building and construction of 8 new wheelchair accessible bungalows.

Client: Arena Housing Group

Value: £5 million

Completed: April 2010

Location: Everton, Liverpool

A wide internal ‘street’ formed a link between the existing building and new wing offering direct access from the arrival space to all communal facilities:

  • Well-being suite with laundry, spa, consultation rooms and hairdressing suite
  • ‘Steamplicity’ kitchen to provide residents with one meal a day
  • Entrances grouped in small foyer areas for sense of community

Communal lounge and meeting room for residents and local community group activities.
