Main contractor Multiplex has awarded building envelope specialist Prater an extensive facade deal for a new extra-care facility on Dovehouse Street, Chelsea.

Working alongside key supply chain partners Schüco and BTS Fabrications, Prater’s scope of works includes the design, supply and installation of all windows across the development, along with an aluminium rainscreen and louvre screening doors.

The redevelopment of 2 Dovehouse Street will see all existing buildings demolished to create space for a new bespoke scheme.

Designed by architect PDP London, the project aims to create the appearance and style of a prime residential scheme coupled with the provision of a high quality extra-care facility – including nursing and personal recuperative care services.

Consisting of 55 residential care units, all designed for self-contained independent living with on-site care support provided by the operator management, the new scheme will be five storeys high, in addition to a lower ground floor and basement.

Each internal unit will also benefit from access to communal private health care facilities and a garden space.

Due to site restrictions in Dovehouse street, the project strategy was to manufacture finished precast panels with windows fixed off-site, a technique Prater already has experience with through similar projects.

Mark Porten, Bid Manager at Prater said: “We are incredibly pleased to be part of the Dovehouse Street Development.

“Luxury extra-care facilities are becoming more common across the city, and we look forward to applying our expertise to this new project.

“Our biggest challenge will be site restrictions, which we had to take into account in our bid, and so we will be involved with installing the windows into precast panels in a factory in Belgium.”
