Project Description

CRGP undertook the project management, quantity surveying and CDM coordination of a new build dementia care building at the site of the existing Dundonald House Nursing Home.

Situated on the outskirts of the village of Dundonald in Ayrshire, the client offers a very high standard of care for the elderly, specialising in severe dementia care. The existing facility is rated six (highest) by Care Commission and the client was keen to enhance their facilities with a new building which required being of a very high standard.

The new building is two storeys and provides 42 ensuite bedrooms, 4 lounge/dining rooms, hairdressing salon, café, main kitchen plus 2 satellite kitchens, assisted bathrooms (including a proposed hydrotherapy room) and laundry facility. The internal specifications are high throughout the building. The building’s hot water and heating is provided by ground source heat pumps to meet the 24 hour requirements of the building. Not only does this provide a more environmentally friendly way of meeting these requirements it also qualifies for the government’s  RHI support scheme (Renewable Heat Initiative). This should allow a payback of the capital cost of the GSHP plant within 5- 7 years and proving far more cost effective than fossil fuel fired heating systems.

The main contractor was Dickie & Moore Ltd and the project procured via the “Design & Build” contract route.
