Morgan Sindall has held a topping out ceremony to celebrate reaching a key milestone in the construction of a £9.7 million care home in North East Enfield.

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

Representatives from Enfield Council joined the Morgan Sindall project team at a topping out ceremony to celebrate the care home reaching its highest point.

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 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 November 2016. The new building will be fitted with excellent personal and en-suite facilities in every room and will increase nursing care capacity in Enfield, offering more accommodation than the previous homes.

Cllr Alev Cazimoglu, Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care, said: “The new care home will be a bright modern building with excellent facilities, specifically designed to meet residents’ needs. It will be fully equipped with adapted en-suite bathrooms, activity rooms and a landscaped garden complete with seating areas and wheelchair accessible paths.

“The 70 bedrooms will be split into groups of 10-14, each with their own lounge and dining rooms, which will help provide a homely environment for the people who will live here.”

Neil Franklin, area director for Morgan Sindall, said: “We’re very pleased to be taking part in this ceremony which celebrates a key milestone in the construction of Enfield Council Care Home. We are incredibly proud to be delivering this development that will enhance the comfort and wellbeing of 70 older people in the area.

“The traditional topping out ceremony is a great way to celebrate the progress of a building and it is wonderful to see the care home continuing to take shape, ahead of its completion in November.”
