This is a £5m new build project for Yorkare Homes to construct a three-storey premium care home. The 72-bed facility has a separate unit for nursing, residential care and two smaller dementia care units.
Hobson & Porter was the main building contractor at the 1.3-acre site in Beverley Parklands. Unlike many facilities or buildings of this scale, this was constructed using traditional brick and block methods as opposed using steel, timber or other rapid-build construction techniques. One driver for this was the emphasis on providing a traditional home environment for residents as opposed to a clinical or healthcare-led environment.
With a long standing relationship with Smith & Nephew spanning over three decades, Hobson & Porter continues to work closely with this FTSE100 business today.
We provide both planned and reactive maintenance to Smith & Nephew and we were also responsible for building its flagship Healthcare House, in Hull.
Smith & Nephew is a global medical technology business dedicated to helping improve people’s lives. With a presence in more than 90 countries, Hobson & Porter is proud to have played a significant role in building and maintaining its facilities here in East Yorkshire.
