Long established Heming Group, which has been trading for nearly 50 years, has been awarded a key contract to provide the groundworks at a well-known Evesham site set to become a state-of-the art £6.6 million care home.
Family run Heming Services Limited, part of Heming Group, won the prestigious contract after beating off competition from several other civil engineering contractors.
The contract was awarded to the company – based in Willersey, near Broadway – by Shropshire-based Beneficial Contracts Limited (BCL). The innovative design and build construction company is run by, Matt Whitthread, who has consulted on a host of TV programmes such as ‘Grand Designs’ and ‘Honey I Ruined The House’.
The 69 bed luxury care home, due for completion in January 2017, is being built on the site of Evesham’s former ambulance station at the junction of Davies Road and Cheltenham Road. Designs for the scheme, submitted by Surrey-based Restful Homes Group, include a cinema, restaurant, bar and a hairdresser’s salon.
Peter Heming, Managing Director of Heming Group, said: “We are delighted to be awarded this project which is central to our target market. We will be on site for a year, building a basement and laying the foundations for the scheme. The development is in an ideal location close to our Cotswolds headquarters.”
Matt Whitthread said: “We employ local contractors where possible and in Heming Group we have employed the best local contractor. The company was very professional when we approached them and were clearly very keen to undertake the work. It’s crucial to get off to a good start on a project like this and with Heming Group doing the groundworks we are in safe hands.”
Tom Cawley of Restful Homes Group said: “We are pleased that Hemings and Beneficial have made a good start to work on site in Evesham and are looking forward to welcoming residents into their new homes in spring 2017. We will begin recruiting our team of care and support staff in the summer and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.”
