Consultant wins contract on £3m refurbishment of care home portfolio in the midlands and the north

Cost consultant Rider Levett Bucknall is set to work with housing group Anchor Trust on a £3m refurbishment scheme to upgrade its regional portfolio of retirement and residential care homes in the North and the Midlands.

The firm’s Birmingham, Manchester and Liverpool offices will provide project management, building surveying, contract administration and employers agent services throughout the three year framework agreement.

Mark Weaver, managing partner at Rider Levett Bucknall, said: “This is an exciting opportunity to marry delivery of our core services with our vision of social responsibility and sustainability.”

Formally Help the Aged, Anchor Trust is the UK’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing, support and care for the elderly.

It is the first time the Rider Levett Bucknall group has worked with Anchor Trust.
