NEW HOUSING CREATES INDEPENDENT LIVING FOR ADULTS IN CLEVEDON
Building contractor, Speller Metcalfe was contracted to remodel an unused chapel in to four, 1- bed flats and two, 2-bed flats, with each flat being equipped with modern kitchen and bathroom facilities.
The project has taken in to account the architecture of the old chapel by keeping some of the original features, including the gothic windows at the front of the building.
To accommodate for the needs of the residents, the building includes a communal flat for carers and family to stay over and assist residents if necessary.
Matt Brown, Living Director at Speller Metcalfe commented on the success of the new housing project: ‘This project will add great value to the community of Clevedon by providing adults with learning disabilities accommodation to live independently.
‘We are pleased to have been awarded a BREEAM Good accreditation by sustainability assessors, BRE, for including sustainable elements such as the installation of sound proof floors, Velux windows, a lift shaft and extension for secure access.
‘These flats will increase the standard of living for both residents and the local community.’
Speller Metcalfe was contracted by Alliance Homes to refurbish the derelict chapel.
