J Tomlinson hands over £6.5m luxury care home in Oxfordshire

June 3, 2019


The construction team at J Tomlinson has handed over a state-of-the-art £6.5m care home to developer, Hamberley Development.

Based in Cumnor, Oxfordshire, 70-bed Chawley Grove Care Home will provide residential, nursing and dementia care, with luxury facilities including a deluxe cinema, a health and beauty salon, a private dining suite, as well as en-suite bedrooms throughout.

The 16-month design and build project, which marks the second new-build care home J Tomlinson has successfully delivered on behalf of Hamberley, was completed on time and budget and opened to residents in early May.

J Tomlinson also constructed the marketing suite for the development, which was officially opened by Councillor Monica Lovatt, chairman of the Vale of White Horse District Council, in February.

The completed scheme marks the latest in a range of extra care projects undertaken by the construction, maintenance and refurbishment services partner, with a third, 43-bed West Midlands-based specialist care facility due to be handed over to Hamberley in October 2019. In addition, J Tomlinson’s commercial refurbishment division is also currently undertaking the refurbishment of Galanos House – a Warwickshire dementia care facility managed by the Royal British Legion.

Darroch Baker, managing director (construction) at J Tomlinson, commented: “J Tomlinson is delighted to have successfully handed over our second new-build care project on behalf of Hamberley Care. We have worked closely with our client and the wider project team to create a luxury facility with the resident experience at the forefront of our shared vision, and we hope residents flourish within their new environment.

“We are currently on site in Worcester, where we are working hard on the construction of another specialist care facility for Hamberley, which will mark the third scheme undertaken in partnership with our client.”

Tim Street, director of Hamberley Development, said Chawley Grove Care Home will be the leading high-quality care home in Oxford. He commented: “The team at J Tomlinson have delivered a best-in-class care home for Hamberley, and we look forward to welcoming new residents in the weeks and months ahead.

“Having the right built environment is critical and we are proud to have gone the extra mile at Chawley Grove to produce a homely and luxurious building that will also facilitate the provision of outstanding care.”

Nottingham-based J Tomlinson, which also has key offices in Canwell in the West Midlands and Wakefield in Yorkshire, offers a range of integrated building services which include construction, mechanical and electrical services (M&E), facilities management, refurbishment, repairs and maintenance and regeneration.

The company works in many sectors, including care and supported living, healthcare, education, commercial, industrial, blue light and heritage.
