Brookside Extra Care, Ormskirk
This project involved the construction of 111, 1 and 2 bed Retirement Apartments, 15 of which were specifically designed for people with dementia. Facilities include Bistro café, Community Room, Library, IT suite, Exercise studio, Music studio, Hair salon and Lounges. It is also a base for several local organisations providing care and support services. Our design incorporated a central plant consisting of high efficiency gas fired boilers, and a gas fired CHP unit, serving all apartments via a district heating distribution system. Each apartment has a metered heat interface unit to enable the occupiers to individually monitor energy consumption. The building was designed to meet Code for Sustainable Homes Rating Level 3.
