Brand new 66-bed, Worcester-based extra care facility to be created by J Tomlinson

August 10, 2021

Building, refurbishment and maintenance services partner, J Tomlinson, is working with one of the UK’s largest providers of high-quality care to create a 66-bed care home in Malvern, Worcestershire.

Set to complete in late 2022, the new £6m care home will be constructed in partnership with Barchester Healthcare and will provide nursing care for elderly, frail, and dementia residents.

Scope of Works

Works to be undertaken by J Tomlinson include construction of the 3-storey care facility, which will be known as Elgar Court Care Home, as well as creation of garden landscaping and parking for 27 vehicles. The ground floor will consist of the main kitchen, laundry room, plant room, staff offices, hairdressers, a large lounge and 18 bedrooms. The first floor requires a separate specification to the ground floor and second floor as this will be specifically dedicated to accommodating dementia care residents. This specialised floor will contain 27 bedrooms, two lounge areas and a large dining area.

J Tomlinson’s Extra Care Expertise

J Tomlinson has extensive experience in delivering construction and refurbishment projects that involve meeting specialist and complex requirements of care homes and extra care facilities. This marks the latest West Midlands-based extra care building project delivered by J Tomlinson, with other schemes completed in the region including construction of Inspire Neurocare Worcester – a purpose-built facility providing care and rehabilitation for adults with neurological conditions and brain injuries – as well as the transformation of the former Nethercrest Residential Home (Dudley) into a state-of-the-art living complex containing 24 assisted living properties.

Current care projects being undertaken by the company include the construction of a luxury, 70-bed care home in Cofton Hackett – set to complete in summer 2022 – and a new Georgian-style care home in Brampton, which is due complete later this year.
