Suppliers of modular lightweight steel structuring, eco-friendly insulation, render and plastering services to contractors, developers and public sector organisations.
As an ever-increasing ageing population puts more and more pressure on our retirement and care needs, developers are faced with the very real problem of supply and demand. According to a recent report, if the construction industry cannot provide another 90,000 retirement homes in the next five years, then the UK will run out of homes for its ageing population.
Meeting the need for greater energy efficiency
As the availability of land for new care home developments is becoming increasingly difficult to obtain, many developers are turning to existing properties with a view to converting them. This is only one solution, however what is apparent is the fact that this type of project be it new build or retrofit, will be in demand both now and in the foreseeable future.
Of course, in many cases care homes that were built 20+ years ago are in desperate need of renovation. This is both to help with energy costs for the owners and providing a comfortable place to live for their residents. Our work on Brocklehurst Court in Chesterfield is one of many examples where we completely transformed a tired and inefficient home.
Westville’s ability to supply modular lightweight steel structuring, eco-friendly energy efficient insulation, render and plastering services makes us perfectly placed to advise and work on this type of project.
