Linford wins care housing contract

Linford has nabbed a £7.2 million contract to build an Extra Care housing development in Shotton.

Clwyd Alyn Housing Association announced the contract as part of the project being run in partnership with Flintshire County Council.

The team was successful in its bid to the Welsh Assembly Government for grant aid towards the project and construction work is due to start soon on the scheme, which will be called Llys Eleanor.

Linford will build 50, one and two bedroom self contained apartments with on site facilities including restaurant, lounges, hairdressing, treatment and activity rooms.

The two storey building will feature a wealth of hi-tech security features including state-of-the-art door entry with visitor recognition, an advanced flood detection system and emergency call facilities.

Linford regional managing director Paul Baines said: “Wherever possible we will be using our existing local labour and craftspeople together with local contractors to ensure the contract is delivered in the most efficient and effective manner possible.”
