Crewe Care Home
This is the third Belong Care Village and opened in December 2010. The 72 bedroom Care Home plus 12 extra care apartments continues the development of designing for people with dementia and the role of the care Village as a community facility.
The three storey building was constructed using load-bearing masonry and a central steel frame to the open plan communal areas.
The building was partially piled to overcome a local weak area of sub-strata. The majority of the building was able to be supported from the excellent firm clay strata below the site.
Due to restrictions on surface water run off rates, the site was attenuated using cellular storage tanks below ground.
