J Tomlinson appointed to build £6.5m care home


Oxfordshire project will provide 70-bed facility for elderly and dementia care

The construction team at J Tomlinson has begun working on a £6.5m project to build a new care home in Oxfordshire.

The 70-bedroom scheme is the second care home built for Hamberley Development by J Tomlinson and follows completion of a 65-bedroom residential care and nursing home in Sutton Coldfield in December 2016.

This latest project will provide nursing care for elderly, frail and dementia residents in a three-storey facility at Chawley Park at Cumnor Hill.

Martin Gallagher, managing director (construction) for Nottingham-based J Tomlinson, said: “We are delighted to have been appointed to deliver a second scheme for Hamberley Development, a company that specialises in creating high-quality care homes and retirement living schemes.

“As a company, we share Hamberley Development’s passion for delivering good-quality developments and are looking forward to bringing this scheme to life.”

The care home will feature hair salon and spa facilities, cinema, activities and hobby rooms, a private dining/family area, a café/bar along with dining facilities, communal spaces and high-quality landscaped outdoor terraces and gardens.
