Thomas Vale to build Aston-on-Trent scheme

Richmond Village

Bouygues UK’s Midlands regional business Thomas Vale has won a £30m contract to build a retirement village in Derbyshire.

The scheme in Aston-on-Trent will include a wellness spa with swimming pool and gym, hair and beauty salon, library, IT room, terrace café, restaurant and garden bar, and landscaped grounds.

It will provide three forms of accommodation: one and two bedroom apartments for independent retirees; suites with a ‘hotel style’ package to help with the daily chores; and 24-hour nursing and dementia care within a care home.

The client for the project is Richmond Care Villages, part of Bupa.

The village is due to be completed in 2016.
