Work begins on £8m Nottingham care home

Rayner Davies Architects and Wynbrook have started work on an £8m residential care home in Nottingham. Situated on the former Clifton Bridge Inn Silverdale, the home will include 83 beds with communal lounges, cinema and hairdresser. Project architect for Rayner Davies, Julien McGuinness, said: “The project was especially challenging due to the proximity of the A453 and the Nottingham Ring Road. Also, its location within the River Trent flood zone required the building to be elevated above the potential flood level.” The project is the fifth care home undertaken by Rayner Davies and Radcliffe based Wynbrook. Wynbrook was chosen for the project because of its high level of expertise in the sector, having recently won the ‘Best New Care Home’ category award at the 2018 Pinders Healthcare & Design Awards in London. The home is expected to take nine months to complete.
