Friday 4th February marked a major milestone for construction company and later living specialist Savista Developments, with the topping out at a new 74-bed Hallmark Care Home in Angmering, West Sussex, known as Angmering Grange.
The site’s construction team were joined by Hallmark Care Homes’ chief operating officer, Aneurin Brown, Chair of Angmering Parish Council Nikki Hamilton-Street and several local councillors to mark the next stage of the build.
As part of the special event, the last roof tile was officially laid by Nikki Hamilton-Street. Guests then enjoyed refreshments nearby and a presentation from Savista Development’s interior design team, Hallmark Care Homes regional hospitality manager and regional dementia practitioner.
Angmering Grange Care Home is being built by Savista Developments at a cost of £13 million, on a 1.9 -acre site at Pound Place, Roundstone Lane. The care home will provide residential, nursing and dementia care and create 100 jobs locally.
This is the latest project for construction company and later living specialist Savista Developments, on behalf of sister company Hallmark Care Homes. Savista’s role extended far beyond construction, by managing the entire process from purchasing the land and securing planning consent, through to the build and finally interior design fit-out, led by its in-house experts in each area.
Facilities will include a café which will serve complimentary hot drinks, homemade cakes and biscuits, a state-of-the-art cinema and a luxurious hairdressing salon and therapy room. Each spacious bedroom will feature an en suite shower room and all bedrooms on the ground floor will have access to their own patio. A collection of suites will comprise a bedroom, large en suite bathroom as well as a fully fitted kitchenette with the latest appliances and a dining area. Other innovations at the home will include an ice cream parlour, reminiscence lounge, garden room and an outdoor roof terrace.
Angmering Grange is scheduled to open its doors to its first residents this autumn.
Kevin Shaw, CEO of Savista Developments, said: “This is yet another exciting milestone for Savista and a mark of our continuing growth.
