In another great project for Wates Construction AV Group has been commissioned to provide on-site contractor accommodation during the construction of a magnificent new retirement village in Worcester.
We have installed eighteen 9.7m x 3m OpenSpace modules which will provide canteen, relaxation areas, toilets, washrooms and changing facilities for the extensive team of contractors and sub-contractors.
Our OpenSpace product was specified yet again by Wates because it is specifically designed to provide fast, efficient, open plan spaces which can be on site and operational within just days of ordering.
Wates Construction is delivering the £27m project to create the Ellerslie Retirement Village for Audley Retirement Villages. The new village will be constructed on landscaped parkland at the former site of the Hillstone School and will comprise the development of 101 one, two and three bedroom properties.
The project, will also include the sensitive restoration of two Victorian buildings: Ellerslie House which will boast a luxury health facility called Audley Club, whilst Ellerslie Lodge will be expertly converted into luxury apartments. The Ellerslie mansions were built in 1855 and were visited by key figures such as Charles Darwin and Florence Nightingale who visited the historic spa town of Great Malvern seeking the Victorian’s favourite water cure treatment. They later became a preparatory school for girls in the 1920s before becoming part of the prestigious Malvern College.
