Bardsley Construction appointed to extra care and dementia unit in Bradford

Bardsley Construction has been appointed to build a new extra care and dementia unit on the site of the former Bingley Hospital in Bradford.

The development, valued at £10.4m will consist of 47 one and two-bedroom apartments, a dementia wing with 30 individual rooms for the care of residents, and a day centre for community use by the elderly.

It will cover seven floors and a total of 7,800 sq ft, including gardens and roof terraces for residents and visitors. The scheme is being constructed on behalf of chartiable organisation The Abbeyfield Society, which provides housing, support and care for people at different stages of later life.

Work has already started on site and will be completed in June 2016.

Commenting, Adrian Rooney, regional manager for Bardsley Construction Yorkshire, said: “This prestigious and specialist development is a truly landmark project for Bardsley Yorkshire.

“It is a scheme that was competitively tendered under a traditional single stage procurement process against tough competition in the marketplace with a number of national contractors.”

Richard Virr, head of development at Abbeyfield, added: “We are really pleased that work on this specialist scheme is now going ahead. There is an obvious need for dementia care services such as those offered by The Abbeyfield Society in Yorkshire, and this development will bring major benefits to the local community.”
