Project Overview


Client: The Hospice of The Good Shepherd
Contract: JCT Intermediate with Quantities
Estimated Value: £2.2M
Completed: October 2016

Information


The Hospice of the Good Shepherd in Backford, Chester required major refurbishment works to the existing building as well as a £2.2M extension which would double the size of the Hospice.

The new building features clinical treatment, physiotherapy, and consulting rooms, four en-suite bedrooms and a communal space for day visitors and activities. In addition, there is an orangery café, a shop and garden with a patio area.

The project design features encompass a number of energy saving initiatives including; LED lighting throughout the building, water saving sanitary-ware and the use of PV panels and ground source heat pumps as the sole energy supply to the building.

 

 

Wildlife on site was cause for concern during the build. Barn Owls were discovered nesting on the site, it was important that Anwyl’s presence and the works did not interfere with their habitat. The area was cordoned off and signs were placed to warn members of the public as well as site personnel to not disturb or enter the area.

Following working with Cheshire West & Chester Council and local wildlife experts, it was discovered that the owls were protecting 3 eggs, and the precautions taken allowed the chicks to successfully hatch.
