In commercial construction there are many regulations that must be adhered to, as well as a variety of factors that should be considered.

Construction methods have evolved, to using greener materials and more efficient processes. Every aspect is carried out to provide the very best in cost efficiency without compromising on safety, design or the end result.
The contractor should be able to talk you through the entire build process and map out what will be completed and when. Their industry-specific experience will be crucial to supporting you make the right decisions when it comes to materials, style and design.
How a care home is designed, and the functionality of the space is extremely important. Your contractor should have the knowledge and experience to help you create the perfect care home environment that provides sufficient space, comfort and considers safety aspects.
These factors can be as simple as arranging straightforward access to kitchen and bathroom facilities from the main living and recreational spaces. Ensuring corridors are wide enough for hospital beds, wheelchairs and food carts.
Choosing the right materials that provide an easy clean environment without feeling too sterile and ‘hospital-like’ for the residents.
Ensuring that doors and windows have all the required safety features, including safety latches and even protection on the hinges to prevent trapped fingers!
Temporary structures of garden buildings can be a great addition to any care home.
They provide a separate area of cover and security for extra curricular activities for the residents, visitors and even a comfortable setting for garden gatherings or small parties. It can also help residents get outside into the sunshine without exposure to any wind and in a more comfortable setting compared with a garden bench!
