Seddon to build 70-bed care home for Cinnamon Care Capital and Barchester Healthcare

Seddon Construction is commencing construction on a new £5.1 million fully fitted care home in Banks, near Southport, Lancashire, for the owner Cinnamon Care Capital. The home once completed will be operated by leading care home provider Barchester Healthcare.

Seddon is starting work on the 70-bed building, this month (July) and once open, the care home will create in excess of 60 permanent jobs locally. The two-storey, 3,643 sq m development, designed by Condy Lofthouse Architects, is due for completion in August 2014.

John Gilman, national pre-construction manager for care sector projects for Seddon, says: "We’re delighted to be using our expertise in creating high-quality, modern care homes to build this brand-new facility. By working with our clients from the outset we ensure the design and specification meet all their requirements; the experience of our team ensures we deliver construction quality of the highest standard.”

The contract was negotiated by Seddon who identified the site and obtained planning permission. This is Seddon’s second development for Barchester and follows the successful development of a 50-bed care home known as Cheshire Grange, in Lymm, Cheshire.
