Kilmac were awarded the contract from Marshall Construction Limited to construct a new care home facility in Cramond, Edinburgh, for Walker Healthcare. The 74 en-suite bedroom care home will provide personalised care services for older people and will include a wide range of shared living spaces such as small dining rooms, lounges, and activities rooms.
Works involve; earthworks, drainage, attenuation system, foundations, reinforced concrete basement and retaining wall structures, gas membrane, & hard landscaping. Due to under supply and high demand of development land in Edinburgh, developers are looking to increase massing on any site wherever possible. The design incorporates a basement structure which will accommodate the functioning areas of the building, i.e. kitchen, laundry, staff rooms, & plant rooms, which allows a 3 storey construction to maximise bedroom capacity.
