Vinci wins £32m retirement village

Vinci Construction UK has been appointed to build a £32m retirement village in Battersea, south London.

Battersea Place will include 109 accommodation units for people aged 65 and over, in a mixture of one, two and three-bedroom properties on Albert Bridge Road in Battersea, south London.

Vinci was appointed by LifeCare Residences, a New Zealand-based retirement village developer and operator.

The contractor will also build a 30-bed nursing home on the site and communal lounges and recreational facilities including a library, restaurant and bar, activity rooms and a fitness centre with a swimming pool.

Vinci Construction UK’s regional managing director Dave Smith said: “Housing for the over 65s has become an increasing priority.

“Our colleagues at LifeCare Residences have a superb reputation in this field; we are very much looking forward to working in partnership with them on a scheme that will make a huge difference to residents in their retirement years.”

It is the first retirement village to be built by LifeCare Residences in the UK.

Work on the 106 week project will begin in September, with completion scheduled for September 2015.
