Bam wins £40m retirement vilage deal

The development is Bam’s second project for Richard Care Villages, which is owned by Bupa.

It will create 48 flats, 46 suites and a 60-bed care home providing nursing and dementia care. In addition, there will be a wellness spa, lounges, library, terrace café, restaurant and garden bar.

Demolition work on the former BBC Residential Training Centre has involved asbestos clearance and removing roof tiles to allow bats to escape.

Groundworks are being undertaken on a 26,000 cu m cut excavation for the basement.

Construction is expected to be completed in September 2018.

Bam Construction regional director in the Midlands Rod Stiles said: “This is a significant high-quality private development in a specialist sector. We are very appreciative that the client has put its trust in us again.

“Together with our major office scheme at Three Snowhill, and major education schemes for universities and the EFA in Birmingham, Coventry and Solihull, we have a diverse portfolio based on good partnerships, modern approaches and high-quality workmanship.”

Richmond Care Villages managing director Paddy Brice said: “We are pleased to be working with Bam again on this prestigious new retirement village for Worcestershire.

“Richmond Wood Norton is an extremely complex development with a main village care centre of 100,000 sq ft, but I am confident that Bam has the expertise to deliver a fantastic building for us to provide the very best in retirement living and care.”
