This unique residential block was designed and built by Lindum Construction on behalf of LACE Housing.
The bespoke £2m development comprises 17 affordable retirement apartments and a holiday home for older people with support needs.
The three-storey building, named Chapman Court, is for people over the age of 55 and is in Scarborough Avenue, Skegness. The previous care home on the site was demolished and replaced with a purpose built complex of apartments; complete with landscaping and a mobility scooter store.
The homes were designed with comfort in mind and include a fully furnished lounge; fully fitted kitchen with electric oven, hob, fridge freezer and washing machine; shower, wash basin and WC; secure door entry system; television and central heating.
Lindum has worked in partnership with LACE on other projects and has gained a detailed understanding of its residents’ specific requirements. Using this knowledge and experience enabled Lindum to deliver this quality, bespoke accommodation designed to meet the particular needs of older people.
Challenges faced and how overcome: Demolition with close proximity to adjoining structures. Small site with very little storage for materials.
