Our team recently transformed the site of a former 1960’s-built care-facility in Pontefract into 12-new build, two-bedroom homes.
The Monument House scheme was for the Wakefield and District Housing Ltd (WDH) with the plots orientated in a half-circle on a roundabout.
We demolished the two-storey care facility before building the homes. They are adjacent to the already built WDH-owned and operated 72-bed care home named Monument Mews.
Each of the dwellings is identical, offering a ground floor compromising a kitchen diner, lounge, downstairs bathroom, hall and bedroom. There is a further bedroom and en-suite, with a first-floor attic space.
Colin Kettlewood, Hobson & Porter’s site manager for the project, said: “This has been a successful build which further demonstrates our skills and capabilities in the health and social care sector.
“It didn’t come without some challenges though. With the work taking place on a roundabout, it made deliveries a little tricky at times.
“Each home has been modernised to a high-standard with modern kitchen units and level access shower rooms.
“All the bungalows have been designed with over 60s in mind, having been modernised throughout to create a relaxing and comfortable environment.
“These homes will help maintain that independent living and make a massive difference in the area, so we’re pleased to have played our part in building them.”
