Construction commences on Bearsden care home
June 13 2012
Designed by the McLennan Partnership for Meallmore Ltd the scheme is being delivered by Muir Construction on an historic Roman site which incorporates a segment of the Antonine Wall, imposing planning and design restrictions on the construction team.
This meant the development had to be ‘sympathetic’ to the surrounding area.
Internally the care home will offer a state-of-the-art cinema room, hairdressing and beauty salon, external roof terraces, underfloor heating and a duel heating system that comprises natural gas and biomass.
Every bedroom will benefit from an en-suite wet room.
Gerry Hennessey, Managing Director of Meallmore Ltd, said: "The arrival of the crane is a significant visible milestone and an exciting step forward. It will be great to see the crane in action as blocks of the care home start to evolve in Bearsden over the coming weeks as Antonine House starts to take shape."
Construction work is expected to complete in December 2012.
