Tasked with building two facilities for aged care by European Care Group, Elements Europe knew that a modular construction system utilising light gauge roll formed steel was the way to go.
European Care Group is the sixth largest independent provider of health and social care in the United Kingdom providing care for over 4,000 service users from elderly to children and adults with special needs. The Group focus is on provision of independently accredited high quality service. The European Care Group provides services which offer care and support to enable people to continue to live as independently as possible. Services are delivered in care homes and supported accommodation within the principles of person-centered care to a diverse community.
Modular construction builder Elements Europe were tasked with building 140-bed Broomfield Grange and 64-bed Chelmsford Nursing Homes to provide services for elderly nursing care and for people with dementia.
Elements Europe worked in partnership with sister company J.R. Pickstock to build two flagship luxury care homes using a combination of Strucpod and Strucmet solutions.
Meeting needs for fast track building of bathrooms and kitchens Strucpod optimizes hybrid construction methods by providing fully load-bearing capability for buildings up to 6 storys high, avoiding the duplication of floors walls and ceilings and is ideal for the care home market.
Strucmet is a fully integrated light steel frame building solution providing highly engineered bespoke solutions offering efficiencies of cutting edge design, manufacture, assemble and installation techniques.
The new facilities represent a significant investment for the European Care Home group. The homes have ‘state of the art’ features together with innovations including a ‘Euro Café’ for Alzheimer’s residents and their families.
Elements Europe represents a ground-breaking approach to the development and delivery of off-site construction solutions, by providing the most comprehensive modular pod technology available anywhere in the UK. As well as design and manufacture, Elements provide a complete delivery, installation and commissioning service to support the entire build process.
