Pensby Road development is now complete... not sure if this picture can be classed as 'arty' or just blurred!   I think it looks good!

Just in case...

Car Park looks great

The corner living rooms

And in the other direction - the kitchen

The living / dining room overlooking the garden with the unique 'fin' design

The end is in site we're nearly there .....  This is the brew station in the corner of the Communal Lounge.  This will be used boy both staff and residents for visitors or functions within this space, using the same high quality kitchen as those within each of the apartments.

The lower ground floors to the garden area are now in focus...... not too picturesque at the moment but they will be transformed very soon 

The front area looking a tad messy as we move to the externals

The car park too...

The project is due to complete next month so lots of pictures showing the completed scheme coming up!  We would like to express our deepest thanks to the schemes closest neighbours for their understanding and patience during the development and to the wider Heswall population for the disruption on Sandy Lane during construction.

Render complete, windows sealed - we also assisted with the staff recruitment for the scheme for our Care Partner with the wrapped banner!

The old sandstone wall has now been removed to be replaced wiht wrought iron fencing.  The Sandstone posts have been preserved and will be relocated ot the front gateway

The Communal Lounge is now plastered ready for its 'mist' coat

The high quality kitchen is looking great! Hmmm...  might pilfer this colour scheme for home! 

The Car Park side of the building looking impressive with the feature metal cladding - It will look more so after the car park works!

Happy New Year to All from Verum Victum Healthcare - we hope you have a happy and healthy one!

Our Pensby Road development is speeding ahead with a concentrated effort to complete the externals.  The scaffold is sitting ouside the scheme office and Communal Lounge areas

To the right of the main entrance you can see what looks like 'fins', these are in fact unique feature windows within the upper floor apartments

After spending 8 weeks clearing the Pensby Road site we are now commencing groundworks.

The site in its original state - situated on the corner of Pensby Road and Sandy Lane, Heswall was terrifically overgrown.  

The house on the site was deemed irreparable and so was removed

The site took a number of weeks to clear to make way for the new development

The site itself has many levels and has dictated the design of the building.  Due to the proximity of the site to the main road and the tightness of space around it, some short term disruption to traffic to enable deliveries etc., will take place.  We will endeavour to keep these disruptions to a minimum.
