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
Lower ground floor living room looking into garden
The kitchen area
View of garden from front elevation
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!
The residents lounge is beginning to take shape
This is the Hallway on the ground floor just inside the building from the main Reception area
Flooring contractor been hard at work.... wet rooms looking good porcelain going in
Bedroom looking great.... bit of a mop and we good to go!
Scaffold tower in place prepping for the render and sealing the corner windows
Meanwhile inside...... corridors coming along
This is the main entrance lobby with the staff office window on the right
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
The features of some of the apartments are now becoming clearer - this is one of the corner living rooms
This is a bedroom window overlooking Pensby Rd
The tilers are now entering the picture and beginning to work on the wetrooms
Kitchen fitters are doing a great job in the other room
Boys doing a great job of boarding and plastering - this picture shows ceiling boards
This picture shows the boarding after the 'mist' coat of paint in one of the upper floor rooms
Following the 'mist' coating we apply two coats of emulsion and the joiners follow once the paint is dry with the installation of the kitchens
Now we move inside and begin the boarding out and plastering
We have a roof! this is the view from the garden side with the communal Lounge on the ground floor
This is the view from the car park
Its all looking very grand and coming along nicely
View Car Park side, Sandy Lane
The contemporary design of the build requires a little inventiveness for the roof structure - this month sees the beginnings of the roof being put together
Looked better in the sunshine!
Frames being delivered
Reaching upper level roofing - all looking good in the lovely Wirral sunshine
Lower level roofing being installed
Windows being installed
Some Fantastic Aerial shots of the site and how much the build has progressed - Again we would like to thank our neighbours for their patience during the heavy works and give our assurances that we are doing our utmost to minimise noise and disruption in the area during these phases
All looking very busy from this height!
Starting the lower roof construction
The inner walls are beginning to give shape to the interior of the build
Swiftly approaching the next floor - the windows on the second floor are arranged as 'fins' to give a unique feature to the build - not very clear to see as yet - this is the view 'garden' side
Weather still holding for the boarding of the first floor
View from Pensby Road depicting the finished development
Looking skyward !
Lovely view as we build higher - lucky with weather too
All looking good!
First stages of first floor installation
Construction of the ground floor moving quickly - once again we thank the local residents for their support during this phase of the construction
The facing bricks providing an example of the look of the building
The rooms and corridors beginning to take shape
The build is now well under way
We are now out of the ground!
How tidy is this!?
Not for long..... let the fun begin..... on with the drainage
Foundations being laid and the outline taking shape
Now the site is cleared we can begin the drainage and foundations
VVHC would like to thank the local residents for their patience during this phase of the construction
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.
