The Project

The extensive development will include a 72-bed care home, 8-bed short stay units and 88 independent living apartments for the over 55s. It is being constructed on the site of a former leisure centre in Flitwick. The building is designed to meet dementia-friendly guidelines and the best energy performance Passivhaus standards.

We are continuing to build on our strong relationship with Central Bedfordshire Council, as they progress with their agenda to deliver future-proof, high quality residential facilities for older people.

The core building, which is designed by architects Oliver and Robb, will deliver the healthiest of environments to help reduce the Council’s energy demands in the future.

Work on site starts in February 2022 with the care home and independent living apartments due to complete in Autumn 2023.
