Mansell Finishes wins £1.2m care home package from Seddon

Grant Prior 6 years ago MANSELL FINISHES LIMITED

Mansell Finishes has won another deal from Seddon for drylining, rendering and plastering at the Gifford Lea Care Village in Tattenhall, south Chester.

Mansell completed phase one of the works and has now started on the £1.2m phase two package which will take 30 weeks to complete.

Works will include 18,000m2 of drylining, 15,000m2 of ceilings, 250m2 of internal render and 35,000m2 of plastering.

Working closely with Seddon Construction and British Gypsum, Mansell ensured that the walls and ceiling materials met the exact requirements of the specification to ensure full compliance, including collaborative technical pre-start meetings with all parties.

Due to access and space limitations, Mansell has developed a concise logistics plan that includes delivering materials to site on a just-in-time basis.

The initial phase of 48 luxurious apartments at Gifford Lea currently offers the over 65s exclusive one and two-bedroom homes.

Once completed in early 2019, phase two will see the completion of 56 one and two bedroom extra care apartments and has been specified to achieve a BREEAM Very Good rating.

Designed by architect Pozzoni for client Inspired Villages in partnership with Legal and General, phase two will also see the development of a wellness spa and pool, restaurant, bowling green and garden room.

Once fully completed the retirement village will have 162 apartments, penthouses, homes and other on-site facilities plus a wide variety of social and leisure activities and a range of care packages, altogether offering an ‘active and luxurious’ lifestyle.

Chris Ellison, Senior Project Manager at Seddon said: “This is a high profile development, a luxury care village and the quality of the internal finishes need to be first class.

“Having worked with Mansell on numerous previous projects and on the first phase we had no hesitation in appointing them to work on phase two.

“Not only have they delivered high quality work, but they also added value throughout the construction process offering the benefit of their experience and ensuring everything runs smoothly and on time.

“Inspired Villages with Legal and General are partnered with Seddon on several of these schemes across the UK both now and with a pipeline looking several years into the future. We are keen to commit to consistent quality across their portfolio and using the best subcontractors is key to that delivery.”

Mike Foy, Commercial Director at Mansell Finishes, added: “Our role is so much more than just turning up on site and doing the works. We want to add value throughout the whole process and get involved early on to ensure we do the best possible job.

“This project is no exception, as we have taken a key role in ensuring that the specification and all the materials that will be used will deliver to the requirements while ensuring the Main Contractor and client are happy with the budget – no easy task but one that we have vast experience with.”
