Our team are currently working on the Structural Engineering for a Care Village.
Bournville Care Village is a £60million state-of-the-art care village being built on the former site of Bournville College on the Bristol Road in Bournville, Birmingham.Our Structural Engineering Design team have been working on this project, which is now in phase 3, in the construction of an 80 Bed Nursing and Dementia scheme. The scheme is two storey with a part basement to suit the natural slope of the ground.
60% of the ground floor slab have been installed and the basement construction is ongoing. The scheme includes several cantilevering terrace areas and a curved glulam roof over the main entrance and cinema areas.
