Morgan Sindall plc has been appointed to design and build a £9.7 million care home in North East Enfield.

The project for Enfield Council is already underway and will provide a new home at Old Road for 70 older people living in residential care.

The Enfield Care Home development will include 70 bedrooms, 17 community rooms, a landscaped garden, hairdressing salon and a modern kitchen and will be equipped to the highest regulation standards with hoists, various aids, lifts and safe storage for medication.

The ambitious new development will replace Coppice Wood Lodge and Bridge House, and residents from these two neighbouring care homes will be the first to be welcomed into the new building in October 2016. The bright and modern building will be fitted with excellent personal and ensuite facilities in every room.

Councillor Alev Cazimoglu, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care said: “Our decision to build a new care home in the borough allows us to respond to the shortages of nursing care capacity in Enfield. Our building contractor, Morgan Sindall, started on site in August and work on the construction of the new care home is making good progress.

“Residents will begin to move in to the new premises at the end of 2016. However, I do want to reassure families that until the new home is ready and fully operational Coppice Wood Lodge and Bridge House will continue to provide excellent services for as long as necessary.”

Neil Franklin, area director for Morgan Sindall said: “We are delighted to be starting work on this development which is going to provide 70 older people with a brand new, bright and modern home. We feel incredibly privileged to be delivering a project that will enhance their wellbeing and comfort with spacious accommodation and state-of-the-art facilities.”
