Fletcher House Care Home, Wells

Dementia Ward extensions and alterations

Harris Bros and Collard Ltd were appointed by Somerset Care Ltd to deliver an extensions and alterations scheme at their Fletcher House Care Home site in Wells, Somerset. These works involved the forming of a new two storey extension for additional living areas set within the courtyard, a single storey extension to form new lounge and kitchen facilities and internal remodelling of a number of bedrooms within the Home. All of these works were to form part of a new, remodeled Dementia Wing at the Care Home.

The site was very limited in space and remained ‘live’ and open throughout the duration of the construction works.Our on-site working foreman worked in close liaison with the Care Home staff to inform them of the daily operations as well as maintaining close control of deliveries and attendance of all trades.

These works were completed over a phased 20 week programme to ensure the maximum number of bedrooms were remained open and undisrupted throughout the project.

Works were handed over for official opening in early September 2015.
