Contractor will deliver two new care homes in Berkshire and Surrey for Signature Senior Lifestyle


Wates has won a brace of care home developments worth £34m for client Signature Senior Lifestyle.

The contractor will deliver two care homes designed by PRP in Berkshire and Surrey.

The first £16m Sunninghill development in Berkshire will comprise 96 bedrooms, while the second £18m scheme at Camberley in Surrey will see the demolition of a four-storey office and the subsequent construction of a four-storey care home with 92 bedrooms.

Work is due to start next month, with completion planned for April 2017.

Wayne Pryce, director of development and construction at Signature Senior Living, said: “The Signature team look forward to once again working with Wates following the successful completion of Bentley House in Hertford.

“Wates has proven that they are able to meet Signature’s high standards and construct exceptional quality homes in which Signature can provide the best possible care.”

Peter Whitmoree, business unit director for Wates Construction Southern Home Counties and South West, said: “Building senior living developments calls for a great deal of understanding of the needs of residents but beyond this, we must also deliver on the developer’s vision to create unique, high-end living environments.

“Our appointment to these two developments sees us build on our existing relationship with Signature Senior Lifestyle, a collaboration that has given us crucial insight into the uncompromising high standards that they set for their communities.”
