Project Facts
Our Role: Main Contractor
Location: Northampton
Client: Avery Healthcare Group
Project Value: £14.5 m
Duration: 102 weeks
Overview:
The project involves the full design and build of an Independent Living Community, The Hawthorns, in Northampton. The building is comprised of 61 Independent Living apartments of varying sizes, with cafés, restaurants and lounges, a cinema, recreation bar, indoor bowls green, hair salon and therapy spa.
Scope of Works:

The site is on a slope, and as such the building incorporates a semi-basement with waterproof concrete retaining walls cut into the ground, with then a 400 tonne steel frame structure punching off large reinforced pads to both lower and upper ground levels.

The four storey structure is clad in a mixture of brick, glass and metal with a flat roof. Internally the structure utilises a structural framing system, metalled floors with structural concrete topping, together with precast concrete stairs. Internally the apartments will be finished to a high standard with individual kitchenettes and bathrooms.

The scheme is visually impressive and we are very pleased to have the opportunity to be involved.

Our timelapse camera video below show the erection of the steel frame for the upper and lower levels.
