Amec leads 40m health care chase

AMEC is leading the chase to build a 40 million-plus health project at Thorpe Hall, Thorpe-le-Soken, Essex.

It is understood that the Ryan Group, which owns Thorpe Hall, and project co-ordinator KRD Medibuild, is in negotiations with Amec for the contract. But sources close to the job stress that these talks are in the early stages and that no deal has yet been struck.

The scheme is due to begin in late summer, with a 100-bed nursing home and 50 of a planned 212 apartments.

The project will be phased over six years and the rest of the scheme including a 70-bed hospital, medical fitness and leisure centres and a nine-hole golf course will be market-driven.

The scheme is being called a lifetime care complex and is aimed at people aged 55 and over.

Fitzroy Robinson is architect for the project, JTS is planning consultant and consultant Chesterton will advise on facilities.
