The Dunes 64 bed extra care

Logic were invited by GallifordTry to join a team to bid for a £26M framework to deliver a 4 year programme of Extra Care projects for Registered Provider Coast & Country and Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council.

The first extra care to be completed was a three storey apartment block of 64no. 1 & 2 bedrooms plus a range of communal facilities plus a dementia day care centre for use by the wider community.

The Logic..

The tight brownfield site in Redcar benefited from an existing vehicular access point in the south west corner and a large expanse of public open space to the west.

The building footprint was set out symmetrically with the principle entrance to the centre with views extending through to a private secure garden to the rear. Accessed via the main entrance a communal lounge, bistro, hairdressers and further community rooms benefited from a dual aspect to both the front and the private garden to the rear.

The efficiency of the layout and low net to gross of circulation space ensured the scheme was one of the most economic extra cares in the UK whilst still retaining a number of convivial features such as numerous lounges and break out spaces throughout the scheme to encourage a sense of community.

The scheme was developed in a collaborative multi disciplinary team using Revit to achieve BIM level 2.
